Van Dijk gets a year

Stefan Van Dijk ( has been suspended for one year by the Flemish Anti-Doping Commission after missing an out of competition drug test at his home on June 8. According to the doping control inspector Hans Cooman, Van Dijk drove away when he saw the Flemish anti-doping bus parked outside his house in Oud Turnhout. Refusing to take a doping test is treated the same way as testing positive.

Van Dijk's team manager Hilaire van der Schueren told De Telegraaf that he expects his sprinter to appeal the decision.
