Brandon Cattouse Is Ready to Ride Again

Brandon Cattouse

Popular Belizean athlete Brandon Cattouse, an elite rider, is free to participate in all sanctioned events hosted by the Belize Cycling Federation after his suspension was lifted on Friday.  The decision to clear Cattouse of doping allegations succeeded an investigation conducted by Dr. Alberto Bravo, an arbitrator assigned to the Anti Doping Tribunal of the Regional Anti Doping Organization of Central America.  Cattouse was suspended after a urine sample taken from him following this year’s Valentine’s Classic returned positive for a prohibited substance classified as a performance-enhancing drug.  Bravo’s decision was handed on Friday and this afternoon, in the presence of his family and attorney, Cattouse shared his sentiments on the outcome.
