Jonathan “Carter” Luck, a collegiate cyclist for Lees-McRae College, accepted a 12-month sanction from the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) on Wednesday for doping, according to Velonews.com.
Luck approached USADA officials in January and voluntarily provided information and physical evidence of his use of personal human growth hormone (hGH) and testosterone—both are prohibited substances. His doping admission has prompted an investigation into other potential doping cases.
Luck, a 24-year-old native of Pennsylvania, raced the 2014 mountain bike season in the Southeastern Collegiate Cycling Conference. He won the dual slalom event at conference championships and placed 31st in the cross-country collegiate national race. He has been disqualified from all competitive results from August 5, 2013 onward.
