More Local Doping

The thing that pisses me off about this is after reading his admission in his personal blog:

1.  He is a very experienced Professional Adventure Racer who knows all about sleep depravation and its affects and I would bet, especially how Modafinil works, was he taking it just because he had to wake up earl or because his professional sport was all about sleep depravation.

2.  He owns a suplement company and his whole business is about what people put into their bodies.  He has to know this is an illegal supplement.

3.  His website talks all about his supplements being WADA and USADA legal so he must have investigated the list at some point but claimed in his blog that he didn't.
Make up your own mind but I think the excuses are BS.
Cycling Athlete Accepts Sanction For Anti-Doping Rule Violation

According to the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA), Cyril Jay-Rayon of Los Angeles, Calif., an athlete in the sport of cycling, has tested positive for a prohibited substance and has accepted a sanction for his anti-doping rule violation.

The 46-year-old provided a urine sample on September 30, 2012, during an in-competition test, at the 24 Hour Nationals in Colorado Springs, Colo., that resulted in an adverse analytical finding for the stimulant Modafinil. Modafinil is prohibited in-competition under the USADA Protocol for Olympic and Paralympic Movement Testing and the International Cycling Union (UCI) anti-doping rules, both of which have adopted the World Anti-Doping Code ("Code") and the World Anti-Doping Agency Prohibited List.

The 18-month period of ineligibility of Jay-Rayon ineligibility began on October 23, 2012, the date he accepted a provisional suspension. As a result of his anti-doping rule violation, the U.S. cycling athlete has been disqualified from all competitive results obtained on and subsequent to September 30, 2012, the date his sample was collected, including forfeiture of any medals, points and prizes.
"Although I used Provigil for work and not to enhance my athletic performance, I should have been more aware about the substances I put in my body before competition," said Jay-Rayon. "I would like to apologize to my fellow competitors and the race organizers for my carelessness."
