December 31, 2012
USADA announced today that Cyril Jay-Rayon of Los Angeles, Calif., an athlete in the sport of cycling, has tested positive for a prohibited substance and has accepted a sanction for his anti-doping rule violation.
Jay-Rayon, 46, provided a urine sample on September 30, 2012, during an in-competition test, at the 24 Hour Nationals in Colorado Springs, Colo., that resulted in an adverse analytical finding for the stimulant Modafinil.

Jay-Rayon’s 18-month period of ineligibility began on October 23, 2012, the date he accepted a provisional suspension. As a result of his anti-doping rule violation, Jay-Rayon has been disqualified from all competitive results obtained on and subsequent to September 30, 2012, the date his sample was collected, including forfeiture of any medals, points and prizes.
