Juan Pablo Dotti, of Duluth, Georgia, has been suspended two years after testing positive for banned substances at the Tulsa Tough in June, the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency announced Thursday.

Dotti, 27, tested positive for an anabolic agent and amphetamine prohibited by the World Anti-Doping Code and the World Anti-Doping Agency Prohibited List.

Dotti’s two-year period of ineligibility began on August 13, 2011, the day he accepted his sanction. As a result of the sanction, Dotti is also disqualified from all competitive results obtained on and subsequent to June 12, 2011, the day the sample was collected, including forfeiture of any medals, points, and prizes.

Dotti, racing for Aerocat, finished sixth in the Tulsa Tough omnium. Dotti is a native of Argentina, where he won the 2005 U23 time trial championships and won a stage of the Vuelta a San Juan in 2008.
