Team Bahrain Merida announcement
Today we have been notified by UCI about the potential Anti-doping rule violation by two members of our Team, rider Kristijan Koren and Sports director Borut Božič. The alleged violations relate to the 2012 and 2013 season.
The Team strictly advocates zero-tolerance doping policy and has therefore provisionally suspended both members concerned.
We would like to stress that both cases relate to the 2012 and/or 2013 seasons. The Team always carries out a thorough medical checks (including biological passport check) of any new signed rider.
The Team will not comment this case until the formal proceedings are final and binding.
