Team Removes Quintero From Roster After Positive

Posted on 23. Jun, 2011 by in news, releases

Update (July 1, 2011) – From USADA

Quintero, 29, tested positive for the anabolic agents, 19-norandrosterone and 19-noretiocholanolone, as a result of a sample collected at the Wilmington Grand Prix, on May 22, 2011, in Wilmington, Delaware. Anabolic Agents are prohibited under the USADA Protocol for Olympic Movement Testing and the rules of the International Cycling Union, both of which have adopted the World Anti-Doping Code and the World Anti-Doping Agency Prohibited List.

Quintero accepted a two-year period of ineligibility, which began on June 23, 2011, the day he accepted a provisional suspension. As a result of the sanction, Quintero is also disqualified from all competitive results obtained on and subsequent to May 22, 2011, the day his sample was collected, including forfeiture of any medals, points, and prizes.

Earlier today the Foundation Cycling New York published the following announcement:

Foundation Cycling New York has removed Lisban Quintero from its roster for violation of team’s contract by testing positive at a race in Wilmington, DE. Lisban has apologized to the Century Road Club Association (CRCA), Foundation Cycling team, their sponsors and the New York racing community in general. CRCA’s Code of Conduct requires complying with all USAC rules and Lisban has been suspended from CRCA indefinitely.

Lisban Quintero came into the spotlight in 2010 when he won his first NRC race, the Base Camp International while racing with the amateur CRCA/Foundation team. In May 2011, he finished 8th at the Bank of America Wilmington Grand Prix Road Race in Wilmington, DE.

At this point, the details of the positive test are unknown.
