Spanish cyclist Francisco Perez failed a doping test conducted during the Tour of Romandie cycle race, the organizers of the event said on Tuesday.
Tour of Romandie officials refused to be drawn on the exact details of the test, but spokeswoman Corinne Druery said: “We learned today that Spanish cyclist Francisco Perez has failed a drugs test taken during the race.”
Perez, riding for the Portuguese Milaneza team, finished third overall and won two stages during the six-day event, which started in Geneva on April 30.
A spokesman for the UCI was not available to comment, but it is believed that the results of Perez’s B-test will be announced in the middle of June. No announcement has yet been made regarding possible sanctions or suspension for Perez from the Milaneza camp.
