RED BULL KTM ENDS CONTRACT WITH BROC TICKLE

Con la conferma che il Test del campione B di Broc Tickle era risultato positivo alla stessa sostanza nell’elenco delle sostanze vietate dalla WADA, la Red Bull KTM ha concluso l’attuale contratto di Tickle con la squadra.

BROC TICKLE – UPDATE Anti-Doping Violation

Tickle ha trascorso le ultime settimane a guidare e testare con la squadra nella speranza che il test antidoping del campione B non tornasse con un risultato positivo della sostanza illegale trovata nel campione A, ma dopo le notizie di oggi (ieri sera in USA n.d.r.) lo portano a terminare il suo tempo con la squadra. A partire da ora, è incerto su ciò che Tickle farà dopo, poiché è provvisoriamente sospeso dalla competizione ed è supervisionato da WADA e USADA, che include il Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship.

Il comunicato stampa di KTM è pubblicato interamente sotto.

È stato rilasciato oggi dalla FIM che il test iniziale positivo di Broc Tickle da San Diego Supercross è stato confermato dal test “B sample”. Di conseguenza, KTM Motorsports prende la dolorosa decisione di rescindere il contratto con Tickle, con effetto immediato.

Roger De Coster, Direttore di gara KTM SX / MX: “Abbiamo avuto un buon rapporto con Broc negli ultimi sei mesi ed è stato un bravo ragazzo con cui lavorare. Tuttavia, la solida politica aziendale di KTM non offre spazio per altre soluzioni, ma per rescindere il contratto, auguriamo a Broc il meglio per il futuro. ”

Tickle has spent recent weeks riding and testing with the team in hopes that the sample would not come back with a positive result of the substance, but today’s news ends his time with the team. As of now, it’s uncertain what Tickle will do next, as he’s provisionally suspended from competition that is overseen by WADA and USADA, which includes the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship.

The press release from KTM is posted in full below…

It was released today by the FIM that Broc Tickle’s initial positive test from San Diego Supercross was confirmed by the “B sample” test. As a result, KTM Motorsports hereby makes the painful decision to terminate its agreement with Tickle, effective immediately.

Roger De Coster, KTM Race Director SX/MX: “We’ve had a good relationship with Broc over the last six months and he was a great guy to work with. However, KTM’s strong company policy gives no room for any other solution but to terminate the contract. We wish Broc the best in the future.”

Today, via e-mail, I was notified by the FIM that testing of my Sample B allegedly confirmed the alleged results of my Sample A test; however, as of today, neither the FIM or the laboratory has provided any supporting evidence for the alleged testing results. In addition, the FIM informed me that, Article 3.3.1 of the FIM Disciplinary and Arbitration Code, Mr. Anand Sashidharan has been appointed by the Director of the International Commission of Judges (CJI) as single judge to “deal” with case before the International Disciplinary Court (CDI). Mr. Sashidharan is the same person that presided over Mr. James Stewart’s proceedings. Now that my case has been formally identified with the CDI, perhaps the process will proceed in a professional manner so that I can finally begin to defend myself. Their system presumes my guilt and presumes their supremacy all while hindering, impeding, and delaying an athlete’s ability to discover evidence to argue against both. As I stated before, I have never, intentionally or negligently, ingested any prohibited substance, and specifically, the alleged substance I allegedly had in my system on February 10, 2018. I have never cheated, doped, or tried to better myself by taking the short way; nor, has anyone around me offered or provided to me any substance that is prohibited by the FIM Anti-Doping Code. I have worked too hard throughout my career to put my career at stake by taking any short cuts. I will do everything possible to fight this allegation, clear my name, and continue with my career. Should anyone have any information that may be relevant to my case, please contact my attorney, Brian D. Harrison
