The Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority (ASADA) acknowledges the decision of the Cycling Australia (CA) to impose a two-year ban on athlete Luke Van Maanenberg for the presence and use of prohibited substances. Mr Van Maanenberg returned an Adverse Analytical Finding (AAF) from an in-competition doping control test on 9 April 2019.

His sample was analysed at the Australian Sports Drug Testing Laboratory, part of the National Measurement Institute, which detected the presence of Prohibited Substances Higenamine and Oxilofrine (methylsynephrine). It was determined that on and/or before 9 April 2019 the athlete used a Prohibited Substance, namely Higenamine.

CA imposed a two-year ban on Mr Van Maanenberg commencing on 13 December 2019. Mr Van Maanenberg is ineligible to participate in any sports that have adopted a World Anti-Doping Code compliant anti-doping policy until 13 December 2021.
