Polish Federation Suspends Rutkiewicz
Wed Jan 28, 2004
Source: VeloNews

Former Cofidis pro Marek Rutkiewicz has been suspended by the Polish Cycling Federation over his alleged role in the ongoing drugs scandal in France, it was revealed on Wednesday.

The 23-year-old was arrested on January 12 by French police along with compatriot and Cofidis soigneur Bogdan Madejak after former team member Robert Sassone, who won a world track title in 2001, was placed under judicial investigation when a cache of drugs were found in his home during a police search."Marek Rutkiewicz has been suspended until his part in the Cofidis affair has been clarified," said federation president Wojciech Walkiewicz. "We haven't contacted him because we do not want the number of the Polish Federation to appear on his telephone bill."

Aside from that trio two other Cofidis team members have been arrested, veteran French riders Cedric Vasseur - who wore the Tour de France yellow jersey for almost a week in 1997 - and 1992 Olympic bronze medallist Philippe Gaumont.

Gaumont is expected to be charged under France's draconian drugs laws after he admitted using the banned blood booster Erythropoietin.
