US cyclist banned for two years

The United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) announced that cyclist Randy Dreyer of Chapel Hill, North Carolina, has accepted a two-year suspension for testing positive to the banned stimulant phentermine.

Dreyer, 33, tested positive for the drug at the USCF/USPRO Criterium Championships in Downers Grove, Illinois, on August 22, 2004. Phentermine is a prohibited stimulant under the USADA and Union Cycliste International (UCI) doping protocols.

Dreyer's two-year period of ineligibility began on May 23, 2005, the date he accepted the suspension, with credit given from November 1, 2004, the beginning of his provisional suspension. In addition, he forfeits his results and winnings since the test, including his 22nd place finish in the 2004 USCF/USPRO Criterium Championships.

USA Cycling, the national governing body for cycling in the United States, will carry out the sanction.
