Team BAHRAIN MERIDA suspend Kanstantsin Siutsou
It is with deep disappointment that we have been informed by the Union Cycliste International (UCI) that our rider Kanstantsin Siutsou, has been notified of an Adverse Analytical Finding (AAF) in a sample collected in the scope of an out-of-competition control on 31st July 2018.
In accordance with our zero tolerance policy, the rider has been suspended immediately.
Siutsou’s contract expires on December 31st 2018 and BAHRAIN MERIDA Pro Cycling Team had notified the rider during the month of June that his contract would not be renewed.
We hold our riders and staff to the highest ethical standards, as Brent Copeland General Manager of Team BAHRAIN MERIDA underlines. “This news is terribly disappointing, we are very severe with any wrong doing with regards to our internal health code, this behaviour is not accepted by our team and further procedures will be taken against the rider”.
