Race cyclist who competed within the 2004 Summer time Olympics and accepted to using EPO to improve his chances at earning a gold. He received a metallic medal in the 2000 Summer time Olympics in hill bike race. He retired after screening positive in the Globe Glass in Mont Sainte-Anne, Quebec, for EPO, although he was also suspended from professional race until January 2006; he came back to race after his suspension system ended, and then retire once again in Sept 2009. He published an autobiography pursuing his suspension, entitled “Positief,” that recounted his life’s tale as well as the fallout from his doping.
