• Katusha avoids doping suspension


    LAUSANNE: Russian cycling team Katusha will not be suspended despite two riders failing drug tests within a 12 month period, the International Cycling Union said on Tuesday (Wednesday in Manila). Last week, Katusha suspended Russian rider Eduard Vorganov after he tested positive for the Latvian-made anti-ischemia drug meldonium, which boosts oxygen supply to the blood and tissues in the body. That came only seven months after Italian Luca Paolini was kicked out of the Tour de France after testing positive for cocaine.
