Brandt: Methadone came from druggist

ESPN.com | Cycling News Wire

Lotto-Domo rider Christophe Brandt, excluded from the Tour de France when he tested positive for methadone, thinks he knows how the drug got in his system:

Brandt, his lawyer, a doctor and a witness consulted the chemist who had sold him two nutritional supplements prescribed by Lotto-Domo team doctor Daniel de Neve, the rider told Belgian daily Le Soir on Thursday.

The chemist said he had worked with methadone on the day he had prepared products prescribed to cure Brandt's recurrent liver problems.

Brandt, suspended by Lotto-Domo and awaiting a ruling from the Belgian Cycling League, said, "I hope to avoid a sanction thanks to this new evidence."
