The UCI has issued a provisional suspension of RadioShack rider Fuyu Li after he tested positive for the stimulant Clenbuterol at last month’s Tour of Flanders.
According to a UCI statement issued Thursday, a urine sample submitted by the Chinese rider ahead of the cobbled classic was tested at the WADA accredited laboratory in Ghent, Belgium. Fuyu finished 122nd at the Tour of Flanders, 9:15 behind winner Fabian Cancellara (Saxo Bank).
