• Provisional suspension of Supercross Rider Broc Tickle to remain in place
The Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme (FIM) has advised US Supercross rider Broc Tickle that the FIM International Disciplinary Court (CDI) has rejected his request for lifting of his provisional suspension imposed pursuant to Article 7.9.2 of the FIM Anti-doping Code. The decision to provisionally suspend Mr. Tickle was taken following the receipt of a report from the WADA accredited laboratory in Cologne indicating an Adverse Analytical Finding of 5-methylhexan-2-amine, a specified substance under Section 6 (Stimulants) of the 2018 FIM Prohibited List, in a urine sample collected from him at an in-competition test carried out by the FIM at the round of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship held in San Diego, California, USA, on 10 February 2018.
Mr Tickle requested analysis of his B sample which confirmed the analysis of the A sample. The FIM has taken note of the claim made by Mr Tickle that he cannot account for the presence of the substance 5-methylhexan-2-amine in his urine.
Mr Broc Tickle is provisionally suspended with effect from 14 April 2018. He is therefore barred from participating in any Sports competition until further notice (Art. 10.12 of the FIM Anti-doping Code) and pending a final decision on the merits of the case. Under the World Anti-Doping Code and the FIM Anti-Doping Code, the FIM is unable to provide any additional information at this time.
