The Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme (FIM) announced today that they have provisionally suspended Cade Clason from all competitions effective immediately for violating Article 7.9 of the FIM Anti-doping code. According to the FIM, a urine test conducted by WADA at the East Rutherford round of Monster Energy Supercross found that Clason’s sample had an “adverse analytical finding of amphetamine.” Apparently Cade had been taking Adderall for a number of years in which he thought he had been approved for with an TUI. He hopes to appeal this decision in the coming weeks so please stay tuned. Clason is currently competing in the Rockstar Energy Drink MX Nationals where he is eighth in MX1 points after three rounds. Cade will be on the starting this weekend in Regina, SK for Round 4.
Article 7.9.2 of the FIM Anti-doping code reads:
7.9.2 Optional Provisional Suspension: In case of an Adverse Analytical Finding for a Specified Substance, or in the case of any other anti-doping rule violations not covered by Article 7.9.1, FIM Administration may impose a Provisional Suspension on the Rider or other Person against whom the anti-doping rule violation is asserted at any time after the review and notification described in Articles 7.2–7.7 and prior to the final hearing as described in Article 8.
