Supercross: FIM Anti-Doping Tests

FIM SX World Championship

Anti-doping controls were carried out at the FIM AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship meeting, held in Jacksonville, Florida (USA) on 27 March.

No prohibited drugs or substances or their metabolites, or markers, or the use of prohibited methods were found in the tested samples. Unlike many other highly contested sports, the image of the highly aerobic motorcycling sports is clean.

The motorcycle racers that were randomly tested included: Joshua HILL (USA), Ryan DUNGEY (USA), Trey CANARD (USA).

The FIM is the world governing body for motorcycle sport, is an independent association formed by 101 National Federations throughout the world.

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) recognizes it as the sole competent authority in motorcycle sport.

Among its 49 FIM World Championships its main events are MotoGP, Superbike, Endurance, Motocross, Supercross, Trial, Enduro and Speedway.

FIM also deals with non-sporting matters such as leisure motorcycling, mobility, transport, road safety and public policy and the environment; FIM was the first International sporting Federation to enforce an Environmental Code in 1994.
