David George Ban Lifted

Ex-Full Sus contributor and professional mountain biker David George has had two months knocked off his doping suspension by the South African Institute of Drug-Free Sport. George’s ban was set to expire at the end of November but with his appeal for the reduction being granted he is now once again free to compete as of 4 September.

In the official SAIDS statement notes that “the reduction was in line with the SA Anti-Doping Rules (Article 10.5.3) where an athlete provides substantial assistance to an Anti-Doping Authority… [Though] the details of the substantial assistance will not be disclosed as investigations are still ongoing and disclosure will reveal the testing strategy of the agency. Cycling South Africa, WADA and the UCI have received the detailed reasoned decision.”
