Marc Lotz suspended

Dutch cyclist Marc Lotz has been suspended by the Belgian Cycling Federation for two years. Lotz was found in possession of EPO when Belgian police searched his house at the beginning of June. He admitted that he was using it for doping and resigned from his Quick.Step team. He also indicated that no matter what his sanction was, he would retire from the sport and take up a job in the business world. Naturally, that means he will not be appealing the two year ban, which will be backdated to June 1, 2005.
