The U.S. Anti-Doping Agency has announced that Joshua Webster (Monster Media/SC Velo) has accepted a two-year suspension after testing positive for “multiple banned stimulants” at last month’s Tulsa Tough event in Oklahoma.
The 38-year-old Webster, from San Dimas, California, accepted a two-year period of ineligibility, which began on July 12, 2011, the day he accepted a provisional suspension.
As a result of the sanction, Webster is also disqualified from all competitive results obtained on and subsequent to June 12, 2011, the day his sample was collected, including forfeiture of any medals, points, and prizes.
The penalty would negate his 91st place finish in one of the three Tulsa Tough criteriums. He was listed as a DNF in the other two. The history of competitive cycling will also be forever changed as his 29th place finish at the Chevron Manhattan Beach Grand Prix on June 26 will now be stricken from the record books.
