MotoGP rider Andrea Iannone suspended for doping

MILAN (AP) — MotoGP rider Andrea Iannone was provisionally suspended after testing positive for a steroid, the International Motorcycling Federation announced on Tuesday.

The failed test came from a urine sample collected from Iannone at the Malaysian Grand Prix on Nov. 3.

Iannone can request the B sample be tested before further action is taken against the Italian driver.

The test was examined at a WADA-accredited lab in Dresden, Germany.
