SA cyclist George tests positive
South African cycling champion, and former Lance Armstrong teammate, David George has tested positive for a banned substance, the South African Institute for Drug Free Sport said yesterday
George, a former Olympian, tested positive for erythropoietin — a hormone that increases the athlete’s red blood cell count, helping boost oxygen carrying capacity and so improving performance.
George is now banned from competing, pending an investigation by an independent tribunal.
