Anthony West provisionally suspended for ‘non-specified substance’

Anthony West caught up in doping violation from tests taken at Misano back in early July. A ‘non-specified substance’ was found in a urine sample.

Westy has been down this road before after taking a cold-flu tablet, but the rules are simple, you test positive, you get suspended, with no discussion entered in to.

FIM Statement


The Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme (FIM) has advised Australian rider
Anthony West that he is provisionally suspended pursuant to Article 7.9 of the FIM
Anti-doping Code (CAD).

The decision to provisionally suspend Mr. West was mandatory following the receipt of a report from the WADA accredited laboratory in Cologne indicating an Adverse Analytical Finding of a non-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 2018 FIM Supersport World Championship held in Misano, San Marino, on 8 July 2018.

Mr. West has the right to request and attend the analysis of his B sample.

Mr. Anthony West is provisionally suspended with effect from 14 September 2018. He is therefore barred from participating in any motorcycling competition or activity until further notice. Under Article 7.9.3.2 CAD, Mr. West may request lifting of his provisional suspension.

Under the World Anti-Doping Code and the FIM Anti-Doping Code, the FIM is unable
to provide any additional information at this time.
