Kreuziger given provisional suspension in connection with doping regulations

The Czech cyclist Roman Kreuziger has been provisionally suspended for breaching anti-doping regulations based on his biological passport, the International Cycling Union has announced. It said it had made the decision after receiving information that Kreuziger intended to participate in upcoming races. The 28-year-old finished fifth in last year’s Tour de France but was omitted from the Tinkoff-Saxo team for this year’s race after the problems with his biological passport were discovered. He is set to face International Cycling Union disciplinary proceedings.
