Phonak bicycle racer Sascha Urweider was suspended by his team after testing positive for illegal levels of testosterone. Urweider is using the Barry Bonds defense, claiming that any illegal substances must have come from an unnamed nutritional supplement he took. Isn't testosterone administered through an intramuscular injection?

Via TDF Blog, which has some good additional commentary and a history of doping at Phonak. See also The Hyena for analysis: "...suggests continued problems within Team Phonak and will hurt their reputation further."
