Serebryakov caught for using EPO

According to a statement from the UCI today, Euskaltel Euskadi rider Alexander Serebryakov tested positive for the banned substance EPO when he returned an adverse analytical finding in an out-of-competition test taken on March 18.

The statement in full:

The UCI advised Russian rider Alexander Serebryakov that he is provisionally suspended. The decision to provisionally suspend this rider was made in response to a report from the WADA accredited laboratory in Köln indicating an Adverse Analytical Finding of EPO in a urine sample collected from him in an out of competition test on 18th March 2013.

The provisional suspension of Mr. Alexander Serebryakov remains in force until a hearing panel convened by the Russian Cycling Federation determines whether he has committed an anti-doping rule violation under Article 21 of the UCI Anti-Doping Rules.

Mr. Alexander Serebryakov has the right to request and attend the analysis of his B sample. 
Under the World Anti-Doping Code and the UCI Anti-Doping Rules, the UCI is unable to provide any additional information at this time.

EPO? How stupid is he? It's bad enough being a cheat without being thick too.

Life ban, it's the only way.
