It was just announced that Frank Schleck has tested positive for the banned diuretic Xipamide.
Diuretics aren’t technically performance enhancing drugs in the traditional sense, but can be used to reduce weight which can help a rider go faster, especially in the mountains. The B-sample has yet to be tested but it is expected that Frank Schleck will be suspended immediately.
So lame, I wish these guys would stop tainting the sport.
I know. The suspicion here is that this diuretic was used to mask another PED.
