Benjamin Martel sanctioned for performance enhancing testosterone

Bejnamen Martel, a participant in the Québec provincial road championships on August 28, 2011, has been sanctioned for testing positive for the banned substance testosterone.

January 23, 2012, the Sport Dispute Resolution Center of Canada announced the decision after Martel’s hearing.

“We remain concerned that any rider would resort to doping and know that we need to focus testing at all levels,” said CCA Chief Executive Officer and Secretary General Greg Mathieu.
