UCI strips French rider and team of world golds

Updated: January 06, 2012, 06:46

AIGLE, Switzerland (AP) French rider Gregory Bauge and the French sprint team have been stripped of gold medals from the world track cycling championships for a doping violation.

Governing body UCI says it has annulled Bauge's victory in the individual sprint event and the French gold in the team sprint race at the worlds in Appeldoorn, Netherlands, last March.

The UCI acted Friday after the French federation imposed a one-year backdated suspension on Bauge for violating rules on rider availability for drug tests and for one missed test in 18 months.

The suspension covered Dec. 23, 2010, to Dec. 22, 2011.

The UCI says all of Bauge's results during that period have been nullified.
