David George Reduction In Sanction

Cycling South Africa reports that David George has, as per the provisions in the SAIDS rules (Article 10.5.3 Substantial Assistance in Discovering or Establishing Anti-Doping Rule Violations), made application to SAIDS for a two-month reduction on his two-year sanction.  The Panel has considered the application and has, under the provisions of the SAIDS Rules, determined that a two-month reduction be granted in respect of the sanction imposed.  George’s period of ineligibility has therefore terminated on the 4 September 2014, making him eligible to compete with immediate effect.

Cycling South Africa respects the independence of the SAIDS process and its rules and regulations.
