It appears that a AG guy in the M40-44, Maurizio Carta, was a former pro cyclist who served a previous ban for doping and refused to be tested for Kona. Not sure if he made it all the way to Kona before they didn't allow him to start on raceday, or if he refused testing in the period between his qualifying race and Kona (which is in-competition period) and didn't travel. Either way, I haven't seen anything formal from WTC on this. Since he refused a in-competition test, coupled with his previous ban, this would mean he should get a lifetime ban? Or since there's nothing formal from WTC, does he just continue to race and try to qualify for Kona 2017?
Seems like there's been a few AGer's that didn't toe the line in Kona this year for similar offenses, but that's only rumor at the moment. Would be interesting if any STer's have any insight.
