As soon as the World Track Championships in Cali are over, there is less good news on the part of the sport. Responsible for this is the Russian Kirill Sveshnikov, who won bronze in the points race at the title fights in Minsk last year. At that time he only had to admit defeat to the British Simon Yates and the Spaniard Eloy Teruel.
Now the 22-year-old is said to have tested positive for an undisclosed substance at the Russian championships in January. RUSADA announced this today. The result of the B sample is pending, and it is not known whether Sveshnikov is applying for it.

The case becomes explosive if you give a tweet from the French website Velochrono Believe. There it is pointed out that Sveshnikov is already the eighth Russian doping case within a year. The most prominent driver was Alexander Serebrjakow, who was dismissed without notice by his then team Euskaltel-Euskadi after his positive test on April 07.04.2013th, XNUMX.
