AAA Panel Imposes Four-Year Sanction on Cycling Athlete Daniel Bond

USADA announced today that a three-member panel of the American Arbitration Association (AAA) has rendered a decision in the case of cycling athlete Daniel Bond, of Deerfield Beach, Fla., and has determined that Bond should receive a four-year sanction after his refusal to provide a urine sample. Bond, 42, refused to provide a sample as requested by a USADA doping control officer during an out-of-competition test on April 11, 2019.

Evading sample collection, or refusing or failing to submit to sample collection, without compelling justification, is an anti-doping rule violation under the USADA Protocol for Olympic and Paralympic Movement Testing, the United States Olympic Committee National Anti-Doping Policies, and the International Cycling Union Anti-Doping Rules, all of which have adopted the World Anti-Doping Code and the World Anti-Doping Agency Prohibited List. Bond’s four-year period of ineligibility began on March 16, 2020, the date the AAA Panel issued its decision and imposed the sanction. The arbitration decision will be posted here once available.
