Guidi joins list of Phonak positives
Fabrizio Guidi, who joined Phonak from CSC at the beginning of this season, has tested positive. Guidi apparently tested positive at the ongoing Tour of Germany.
The team has suspended him in advance of the 'B' sample results.
Guidi joins Oscar Camenzind, Santiago Perez, and Tyler Hamilton as Phonak riders to test positive in a little more than a year.
The UCI has also announced that it will NOT pursue action against a rider who tested positive for pseudoephedrine and norpseudoephedrine, which can be created by the body when riders take permitted cough medicines. In all, 164 drug tests were administered during the 2005 Tour, all negative.
