Dec 22 - Two-times Mexican national champion Luis Villalobos has been banned for four years after a public statement on Wednesday that he was found guilty of antidoping infringement.
UCI's Anti-Doping Tribunal said that it showed GHRP-6, a growth hormone-releasing hexapeptide and a prohibited substance on the World Anti-Doping Agency list, in the sample of Villalobos from 2019 to 2013 when he was with American-based Aevolo.
The Tribunal found the rider guilty of an antidoping rule violation (presence of GHRP-6) and delegated the rider's ineligibility to a four-year period", UCI said in a statement.
Villalobos, who was 23 in May last year, had joined EF Pro Cycling in 2019 but lost his job a lot due to an adverse analysis finding.
We could not sign Luis if we had known. The burden of this is on the UCI due to no internal testing program that has access to equipment needed to test for GHRP-6. Those of us with the team's CEO, Jonathan Vaughters, said last year.
Villalobos won the Mexican National Time Trial championship in 2018 and 2020.
Our rules are the same: "Secrets"
