Schumacher acquitted

Professional cyclist Stefan Schumacher, who delivered positive test results for the doping substance cathine (norpseudoephedrine) in the Rheinland-Pfalz Rundfahrt this year, while he headed the UCI Continental Circuit ranking in Europe, was acquitted in court this week. The German Cycling Federation BDR announced that the rider had asked several sports Federations if the medication against his pollen allergy was permitted. Schumacher's mother, who's a GP, had prescribed him the medication.
