Independent Panel Grants Motion to Postpone in Danielson Case

The American Arbitration Association (AAA) panel overseeing the case of cyclist Tom Danielson has granted a motion made by Mr. Danielson’s counsel to postpone his arbitration hearing. Mr. Danielson will remain provisionally suspended, and the hearing originally scheduled for June, will move to a yet-to-be-determined date in the fall.

Mr. Danielson previously announced his positive test, which USADA confirmed was for an anabolic agent found through Carbon Isotope Ratio (CIR) testing. While USADA was prepared to move forward with the scheduled June hearing, Mr. Danielson’s counsel requested a postponement in order to conduct further analysis of supplements he was using at the time of sample collection. The independent panel will immediately begin the process of setting a new date for the hearing.
