The USADA  announced today that an independent, three-member American Arbitration Association/Court of Arbitration for Sport (AAA/CAS) panel has handed down a decision that will give David Clinger a sanction for testing positive for two prohibited substances.

Clinger, 32, of Sandy, Utah, tested positive for synthetic testosterone and modafinil in a sample collected from him on July 30, 2009, after placing second in the men’s road race at the USA Cycling Elite Road National Championships in Bend, Oregon.

Synthetic testosterone is prohibited as an anabolic agent and modafinil is prohibited as a stimulant on the World Anti-Doping Agency Prohibited List, which has been adopted by the USADA Protocol for Olympic and  Paralympic Movement Testing and the International Cycling Union “UCI” Anti-Doping Rules. Clinger’s two year period of ineligibility began September 3, 2009, the day he accepted a provisional suspension.

As a result of his doping violation, Clinger has also been disqualified from all competitive results achieved at and subsequent to the USA Cycling Elite Road National Championships, including forfeiture of any medals, points and prizes. Results from the 2009 USA Cycling Elite Road National Championships have been revised for the elite men’s road race and medals will be awarded accordingly. The revised results are as follows:
