AUSTRALIAN PRO MOTOCROSSER GETS SIX-YEAR DRUG VIOLATION BAN

Australian racer Kade Mosig was given a six-year ban for violating Motorcycling Australia’s (MA) anti-doping policy. The six-year suspension start date is May of 2018, so technically Mosig, who quit racing after being provisionally suspended in July of 2018, has already served 21 months of his 72-month ban. Mosig could come back to racing on July 10, 2024.

Mosig’s drug violation was not a one-time deal. Motorcycling Australia confirmed to www.motoonline.com.au that Mosig committed 19 violations of the anti-doping policy.  Mosig tested positive exogenous 19-norandrosterone, 19-noretiocholanolone and D-amphetamine (all three on the prohibited substances list). In addition to the six-year ban, all of Mosig’s motocross results will be wiped off the books going back to December 9, 2013.

“I accept the sanction imposed on me, understanding I have made some poor decisions in the past,” Mosig said in a statement. “I want to apologise to my family, friends, competitors, supporters and my sponsors. Regrettably, I will be moving on from racing professionally and will be making no further comment on this matter.”
