Former Team Sky rider Kanstantsin Siutsou has been banned for four years after he failed an anti-doping test in 2018, the International Cycling Union said.

The 37-year-old, who was riding for the Bahrain-Merida team at the time, was provisionally suspended in September 2018 after a sample collected in July that year returned a positive test for the banned blood booster erythropoietin (EPO).

Siutsou retired at the end of that year after being told his contract would not be renewed. His ban, imposed following a UCI anti-doping tribunal, ends in September 2022.
