Metaltek-Scott rider Marcel Six has been banned for 18 months by UK Anti doping for refusing to give a urine sample after the Canary Wharf Tour Series round on May 31.

Six, who finished 11th on that day, was twice asked to provide a sample by the UKAD Doping Control Officer immediately after the race, but refused on both occasions explaining that he had to get home as his wife and children were waiting for him.
