(AFP) — Slovenian mountain bike specialist Blaza Klemencic, a two-time Olympian, has received a provisional suspension from the UCI after a sample collected in 2012 returned a positive result for EPO.</p>
<p>A post on the UCI website revealed Saturday that the sample in the case, given on March 27, 2012, had tested positive when reanalyzed recently.</p>
<p>Last month, Italy’s Giampaolo Caruso (Katusha) was suspended for a sample given in 2012.</p>
<p>The UCI has said that, where possible, it will follow the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) code and store and reanalyze samples over 10 years to allow for scientific advancements in doping tests.</p>
<p>Klemencic, 35, was third in this year’s European championships in cross country. She competed at both the 2008 Beijing Olympics and the 2012 London Olympics.</p>
