Predictor-Lotto fires Leukemans after failed doping test

Predictor-Lotto fires Leukemans after failed doping test

The Predictor-Lotto cycling team said Wednesday it had fired Belgian rider Bjorn Leukemans for testing positive for banned substances.
"The team applies an absolute zero tolerance concerning the use of doping products," Predictor-Lotto said in a statement.
Leukemans last week said that his B-sample confirmed an initial positive result from a doping test ahead of the Cycling World Championships in September where he finished 13th in the road race.
The 30-year-old rider has maintained his innocence and says the high testosterone level was the result of natural causes.
Leukemans was suspended by the team in November after the results from the A-sample became known.
