CYCLING ATHLETE RECEIVES SANCTION FOR DOPING VIOLATION

Colorado Springs, Colo. (November 24, 2010) - USADA announced today that U.S. cycling athlete, Charles “Chuck” Coyle, of Boulder, Colorado, has accepted a two-year period of ineligibility for an anti- doping rule violation based on his purchase, possession and use of synthetic erythropoietin (EPO) and insulin growth factor (IGF-1).

EPO is a synthetic hormone used to stimulate the body’s production of red blood cells, thereby increasing oxygen transport and aerobic power. IGF-1 is a synthetic hormone used to aid in recovery and build lean muscle mass. Both EPO and IGF-1 are prohibited substances in the class of Peptide Hormones, Growth Factors and Related Substances under the USADA Protocol for Olympic and Paralympic Movement Testing and the International Cycling Union (UCI) anti-doping rules, both of which have adopted the World Anti- Doping Code (“Code”) and the World Anti-Doping Agency Prohibited List.

Coyle’s two-year period of ineligibility began on November 24, 2010, the day he accepted the sanction. Additionally, Coyle is disqualified from all competitive results achieved on and subsequent to June 13, 2007, the date he first committed the anti-doping rule violation based on evidence in USADA’s possession, including forfeiture of any medals, points and prizes.

In an effort to aid athletes, as well as all support team members such as parents and coaches, in understanding the rules applicable to them, USADA provides comprehensive instruction on its website on the testing process and prohibited substances, how to obtain permission to use a necessary medication, and the risks and dangers of taking supplements as well as performance-enhancing and recreational drugs. In addition, the agency manages a drug reference hotline, Drug Reference Online (www.GlobalDRO.com), conducts educational sessions with National Governing Bodies and their athletes, and proactively distributes a multitude of educational materials, such as the Prohibited List, easy-reference wallet cards, periodic newsletters, and protocol and policy reference documentation.

USADA is responsible for the testing and results management process for athletes in the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Movement, and is equally dedicated to preserving the integrity of sport through research initiatives and educational programs.

USADA announces another cycling suspension

By Charles Pelkey Updated: Nov 24th 2010 7:26 PM EST

Coyle is fast, but not fast enough to outrun USADA

Boulder-area racer Charles “Chuck” Coyle has accepted a two-year suspension after the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency found that he had purchased and used synthetic erythropoietin (EPO) and insulin growth factor (IGF-1).

The 38-year-old Coyle is the president of the Boulder-based Hüdz-Vista Subaru cyclocross team and has been an active road, track and `cross racer for 20 years.

Coyle’s two-year suspension began on Wednesday, when he accepted the penalty after investigators presented evidence of purchases of illicit performance-enhancing drugs dating back to June 13, 2007. Under UCI and USADA rules, Coyle will be required to return any prizes earned since that date.

As was the case with another suspension announced Wednesday, Coyle’s case did not involve an analytical positive test, but was based on evidence of purchases of illicit performance-enhancing drugs supplied in other investigations.

How many drug shipments were received?
Was the same credit card used for all orders?
Over what period of time were the drugs ordered?
How many doses in each shipment?
Was Coyle aware of the shipments?

C'mon journalists, do your job objectively.
