Belgium's Sentjens retires after admitting doping

Belgium's Sentjens retires after admitting doping

Belgian rider Roy Sentjens says he resorted to doping with EPO earlier this year and is now retiring from cycling after testing positive for the banned substance.
Sentjens, a 29-year-old member of the Milram team, had been provisionally suspended and removed from the Spanish Vuelta after the UCI said Thursday he failed an out-of-competition test on Aug. 16.
The rider says he took the endurance-boosting hormone because his season had been "a disaster" and he wanted a new contract.
Sentjens says he apologizes to all those who believed in him and adds "I've done wrong and will suffer the consequences of it."
