Apparently his FIM suspension from the failed drug test in 2017 has now expired and Cade is allowed to apply for a license and participate in any series. Finally.

We're pretty much claiming him as Canadian now.

How does that work since he kept racing in Canada?

When is the agreement with WADA going to expire?

I was under the impression that him racing in Canada would extend his ban. Did the FIM throw in the towel because they massively screw up everything to do with failed drug tests?

Just to keep this straight

Stewart : Suspended : But given a TUE for what he was suspended for .

Clason : Suspended: But continued to Race and Suspension just expired .

Tickle : Suspended : Gets to come back after round 7 next year

Craig : Could be suspended but maybe not Has been kept on the secret hush hush program.

Same question..

This answered a question but raised another. They had said all along racing would extend the penalty...

Damn broc is going to be pissed. He couldnt race without extending his suspension but clade got off easy.

DC I know you have to be PC and may choose to skip over this and I understand, but honestly, what has to happen to either remove WADA from the US Supercross and Motocross series or have them be a secondary option and make all US racing go through USADA?

It seems to me that having a state side organization as the primary testing and punishment authority makes the most sense as the athletes are in the same country and things can be handled much more efficiently.

MX Media which I consider more reliable than some random dude on the internet, but if that is how you view it so be it.

Same question as others and first thing that came to mind after reading the news. FIM apparently made it clear to Tickle that if he chose to race in a non-FIM sanctioned series(i.e. Canada) that his suspension period would effectively reset/restart from date of last race...

At this point i don’t see how any rational being could argue FIM/WADA isn’t just making things up as they go...

I used to ride 250 novice and get beat up by Neil Goldman, but now that I take PED's, I'm qualifying for 450 SX mains and smashing strange every night. #PEDLYF4EVR

Big difference if you look at the big picture.of both cases.

Good for Cade.

Such a bizarre process with no actual "suspension" and just the phantom "provisional suspension." It's like someone saw the stalled paperwork and woke up today and was like "yeah, that's not good, let it go."

Strnage is the best word to ever come out to describe a random. LOL

USADA is under WADA. So if MX Sports used USADA they would still be subject to WADA rullings as I understand it.

The problem is that drug testing is expensive and complicated so to try to do it in house would be too costly. It is not like a pregancy test where it is positive and done deal. Positive drugs tests are held to a much higher standard and it is why you hear about athletes getting off with ridiculous reasons (see Contador and Armstrong and their positive tests for PED's).

The two big problems with WADA is that they folllow a 4 year olympic cycle that is not good for MX. But MX is small potatos so they dont really care how a suspension effects a riders season (i.e. being able to start racing at the start of a season versus middle of a season and how that effects a riders chance of getting sponsored). This combined with poor communication with the athletes is a bad mix.

All these promoters and orgs is one big buddy club and it's not going to change. A couple Genova's could start something new and bury these lame-o's in five years.

WTF absolutely zero consistency - the people in charge of the sport should be ashamed.

Good for Cade. Broc should head north for the rest of the summer.

DC it’s also time for the FIM and Wada to be banished from American motocross. Their draconian ways should no longer be tolerated

This makes as much sense as WADA/USADA penalties

If I was a racer, a journalist, or Joe blow on the internet (who I am) I would only believe what I have in certified correspondence with the FIM or WADA. I wouldn't even believe what the told me face to face.

I have been very vocal in my belief that we need to get SX and MX together under a domestic program like USADA (which MX already uses) so athletes can have their cases litigated in the U.S. and not on the other side of the world. I would like to see the AMA step up and take over the drug-testing process from the FIM, which have proven time and again to not be able to navigate this in a timely or consistent manner. Hopefully that happens sooner than later, but I don't really have a vote in what happens with SX...

Wasn't Cade suspended BEFORE Tickle? but Tickle got his notice to return to racing before Cade?

Tickle isn’t allowed to race until February 2020, sounds like Clason is good to go now.

Good to hear, likeable guy, served his penalty and then some, hope he can return to making SX mains again but it won’t be easy

If you would, please take me through the chain which requires WADA to be involved in our indoor/outdoor series.

Also, what's in place that would make it such that the sport isn't allowed to exist without them?
