Cycling Australia wants maximum punishment for Rogers
(12-19 18:25)

Cycling Australia says it will seek a maximum two-year ban for Michael Rogers if the 2004 Athens Olympic bronze medalist and three-time world time trial champion is found guilty of doping.
The International Cycling Union said on Wednesday that Rogers tested positive for clenbuterol, which helps build muscle and burn fat, at the Japan Cup on October 20. He has been provisionally suspended.
Rogers, who has denied the doping claims, has requested an analysis of his B sample.
Interim Cycling Australia chief executive Adrian Anderson says "while we respect Michael Rogers' right to defend himself, we will support the maximum sanctions applicable in the event that he's found guilty of doping. For too long, this great sport of cycling has been let down by drug cheats.'' --AP
