Admitted violation after being snagged with non-specified evidence

dopingMasters rider Neal Schubel has been handed a two year ban by the US Anti Doping Agency, which administered the punishment after deeming that he bought and used EPO.

The 45 year old from Saginaw, Michigan, didn’t test positive for the substance, but rather was implicated by unspecified evidence.

USADA’s statement announced that Schubel’s period of ineligibility would begin on November 18, 2010, the day he accepted the sanction. It added that there would be another penalty, and gave an indication of the timeframe when he admitted starting doping.

“Schubel is disqualified from all competitive results achieved on and subsequent to August 1, 2006,” it said, “the date he first committed the anti-doping rule violation based on his prompt admission to USADA after being confronted with evidence in USADA’s possession, including forfeiture of any medals, points and prizes.”

Schubel’s results, which can be viewed on the USAcycling.org website, can best be described as modest.
