The Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) has announced that eight riders had a positive result in doping tests taken during the last edition of the Vuelta a Colombia.

It was already known that U23 Colombian champion Robinson Lopez tested positive at the race and now the UCI has confirmed that another seven riders also had a positive result for the same substance, CERA or third generation EPO.

"The riders Luis Alberto Largo Quintero, Jonathan Felipe Paredes Hernandez, Edward Fabian Diaz Cardenas, Fabio Nelson Montenegro Forero, Luis Camargo Flechas, Fabian Robinson Lopez Rivera and Oscar Soliz Vilca were notified of an Adverse Analytical Finding (AAF) of CERA in blood samples collected on 1 and 2 August 2017," reads the statement.

"The rider Juan Carlos Cadena Sastoque was notified of an AAF of 19-noretiocholanolone and 19-norandrosterone in a urine sample provided on 11 August 2017."

The riders now will have the chance to request and attend the analysis of the B Sample and have been provisionally suspended until the resolution of the second test.
