Kayle Leogrande aka John Doe

These guys are off the chain crazy. But this should at least answer the question as to what happens with a B sample once the A sample clears.

I would think it would be destroyed.

Rock Racing rider Kayle Leogrande is the anonymous rider filing a lawsuit against the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency, charging that it planned to test his B urine sample after his A sample tested negative for performance-enhancing drugs, several sources told VeloNews Friday.

Sources with intimate knowledge of the case confirmed that Leogrande is the unnamed cyclist suing USADA, and verified that sworn affidavits have been filed with the agency as it tries to build a case against the 30-year-old rider.

The Associated Press reported Thursday that an anonymous professional cyclist had filed a lawsuit against USADA on behalf of “John Doe,” seeking an injunction to prevent the anti-doping agency from ever testing the B sample. The 25-page lawsuit, filed on January 23 in Los Angeles County Superior Court, claims that USADA originally planned to test the B sample on January 15, but backtracked after the plaintiff’s attorneys demanded the agency forgo the second test.

USADA general counsel Bill Bock said Friday that agency rules prohibit him from discussing any specific open cases. He also told VeloNews that that the testing of a B sample after a negative A sample “is not prohibited, and certainly we believe it to be permissible.”

…The urine test in question occurred at the International Cycling Classic, also known as Superweek, where Leogrande won three events, finished second at three events and placed second overall by five points

  1. What can I say, the boy’s right. If the A sample passes they have no other option but to dump the B. They can’t just keep “testing” until they get the result they were looking for.

  2. …it’s happening on a national level, it’s happened on the international level & now, at a time when a lotta folks are taking positive steps to clean up the sport, this kinda thing is just one more reason for the general public to think cyclists are batshit crazy…
    …as if the sport hasn’t given them enough reasons…ahem, you aso & uci officials tied up in yer pissy little cycling-destructive power struggle…

    …despite micheal balls, at times, brash & mouthy approach to the sport, i enjoy the fact that he’s not afraid to hire guys like kyle leogrande & david clinger…guys who don’t fit the preconceived notions of certain sponsors or cycling officials…

    …that being said, i’d sure like to hear mikey ball address how his team is gonna create a pro-active testing environment & i’d like to see him do it w/ the same passion he reserves for defending some of his actions…
    …we know ya got bucks, dude, & we know ya wanna be the “l’enfant terrible” but now show us ya got real balls & make yer pro-active stand a message of importance…

    …& while frankie andreau is not a real favorite of mine, i will give him props for carrying a positive anti-drug message during his time w/ the team…i know frankie worked to have those guys understand that they had to consider literally everything they consumed including “health food” products or any kinda vitamin supplements…

    …anyway, i sure as hell haven’t heard many “officials” address the the lab testing situation w/ the same dogmatic & vehement approach they reserve for the cyclists…
