Motorcycling Australia has confirmed Jake Moss will receive a four-year ban for violation of the MA's Anti-Doping Policy.
Motorcycling Australia released the following statement confirming Jake tested positive to a banned substance and will receive a four-year ban.
Motorcycling Australia (MA) has confirmed that Jake Moss, has received a four year sanction for violations of Articles 2.1 and 2.2 of MA’s 2015 Anti-Doping Policy for the presence of Prohibited Substances in an Athlete’s Sample and the use of a Prohibited Substance.
On 22 May 2016, Mr Moss tested positive to the Prohibited Substance Ostarine (Class S.1.2 Other Anabolic Agents) following a doping control test conducted by ASADA at the MX Nationals in Murray Bridge, South Australia.
Mr Moss did not apply for a hearing in the Court of Arbitration for Sport and accordingly the mandatory four-year sanction has been imposed.
MA imposed the mandatory provisional suspension on Mr Moss on 15 July 2016 and his sanction has been backdated to take account of the time he has already served. This means he is ineligible to participate, as an athlete or support person (including coaching or officiating) until he has completed his four year sanction. The ban includes using Member facilities.
Mr Moss will be eligible to recommence participation in the sport from 15 July 2020.
There has been no confirmation on the charges against Jake’s brother, Matt, for alegibly testing positive to the same drug.
