Haro fires Chris Sheppard

After his recent suspension by the Canadian Cyling Federation for testing positive for EPO, Chris Sheppard's sponsor Haro has fired the rider. Sheppard had raced for Haro Bikes for a total of 7 years and played an integral role in the research and development of Haro’s mountain bike line.

“We’re obviously disappointed with this news,” said Jim Ford, Haro’s President/CEO. “Chris has been a great ambassador for Haro and the sport of mountain biking for many years. Despite the serious nature of this situation, we still view Chris as a good person who made a bad mistake.”

Keeping with Haro’s zero tolerance policy when it comes to its athlete’s use of banned performance enhancing drugs, Sheppard has been immediately released from his racing contract, the company said.
