Cycling: Tour of Turkey winner positive for doping

LAUSANNE, Canton of Vaud: The 2013 Tour of Turkey winner Mustafa Sayar has tested positive for the banned performance enhancing drug EPO, the International Cycling Union (UCI) announced on Monday.

The 24-year-old Turk has been provisionally suspended pending an investigation by the Turkish Cycling Federation, whose job it will be to implement any punishment.

Sayar actually tested positive during March's Tour of Algeria.

He is the second straight winner of the Tour of Turkey to be caught doping following 2012 laureate Bulgaria's Ivailo Gabrovski, who failed a test during that race.

Yes No
THE DAY'S QUOTE

“That was pathetic. No excuse at all. The whole team is responsible. Whoever the captain is, we have to back him and try and support him. The captain has to do so many other stuff. All the 11 guys must back him and support him.” “We have addressed the issue of finishing off the overs on time in the past as well, but it cropped up again. It’s so unfortunate to see Upul going out as he is a crucial player in our set up. He batted well against South Africa and it’s so unfortunate. This can’t happen again,” - Angelo Mathews

FEEDBACK/COMMENTS

Cricket is a game of fine margins and Mathews is set to be a modern great. Hang in their Angie, this team can achieve something on this tour. Thirimane and the youngsters form was a real positive. Prasad was missed. Chameera should be persisted with. If Bairstow was our early outcome could have been very different.
