Facts are scarce at the moment. Which is another way of saying; I have no idea. But, it doesn’t look good.
Cyclingnews has gathered information that the US Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) is in the process of appealing a case against American cyclist Phillip Zajicek. Cyclingnews also understands that the American was cleared of purchasing EPO from the Shandong Kexing Bioproducts company in a hearing that took place last Autumn.
“I can confirm that the Zajicek case is being appealed,” a source who is close to the case, told Cyclingnews. “They say they have a stronger case now. I provided USADA with information about him.”
Cyclingnews contacted Zajicek on Tuesday and were told, “I don’t have any comment. There’s no story.”
How does one bring in new evidence on an appeal? Oh yeah, private actor (USADA) means no due process rights (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Due_process#Applicability).
