Two Costa Rican cyclists suspended following alleged positive doping tests

The Vuelta a Costa Rica continues to be dogged by doping issues

Two Costa Rican cyclists have been suspended for allegedly returning positive tests dating from the Vuelta a Costa Rica 2019.

29-year-old Fabricio Quirós and 31-year-old Orlando Quesada are the two riders who have been provisionally suspended, with Quirós having won the penultimate stage and finishing seventh on GC in the race, which took place in late December, while Quesada finished 52nd overall.

Hi. I'm Cycling Weekly's Weekend Editor. I like writing offbeat features and eating too much bread when working out on the road at bike races.

Before joining Cycling Weekly I worked at The Tab and I've also written for Vice, Time Out, and worked freelance for The Telegraph (I know, but I needed the money at the time so let me live).

I also worked for ITV Cycling between 2011-2018 on their Tour de France and Vuelta a España coverage. Sometimes I'd be helping the producers make the programme and other times I'd be getting the lunches. Just in case you were wondering - Phil Liggett and Paul Sherwen had the same ham sandwich every day, it was great.
