Dimitry Fofonov fired for using heptaminolThe Kazakh rider, Dimitry Fofonov, has been fired by the Credit Agricole team after he tested positive for heptaminol during the Tour de France.

Fofonov produced a positive A sample following the 18th stage from Bourg d’Oisans to St Etienne that was won by Marcus Burghardt.

The doping incident once again highlighted the association between cycling and doping, which has grown over the last few years.
