Samuel Sanchez Sacked after B- Sample Positive Confirmed

BMC terminate contract after the doping positive of the 2008 Olympic gold medalist Samuel Sanchez was confirmed by analysis of the rider’s B-sample

Sanchez was provisionally suspended after an out-of-competition doping control on August 9, 2017 showed evidence of growth hormone-releasing peptide 2 (GHRP-2), a drug that increases the body’s levels of growth hormone.

BMC have since announced they have terminated Sanchez’s contract with immediate effect after the B sample analysis returned a positive finding.

“In accordance with BMC Racing Team’s zero tolerance policy with respect to doping violations and UCI regulations, Sanchez was immediately suspended from BMC Racing Team,” BMC said in a statement.

“At the request of Sanchez, his B sample was analysed at the WADA accredited laboratory in Lausanne, Switzerland. The analysis of Sanchez’ B sample confirmed the presence of GHRP-2 and its metabolite, as found in his A sample. At that time, Sanchez’ contract with the team was terminated with immediate effect.”

The 39-year-old had been due to compete in the Vuelta a Espana and was contemplating retirement, and said the test result came as complete surprise in August.

“I am 39, I have been a professional for 19 years, and I am at the point of retiring,” he said. “Why would I get into this?”
