Colorado Springs, Colo. (Nov. 25, 2002) --The United States Olympic Committee (USOC) received notification from the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) 30 days ago that USADA's Anti-Doping Review Board determined that sufficient evidence of doping
exists to proceed further in the case of Scott Moninger of Boulder, Colo. Moninger, from the sport of cycling, tested positive for the prohibited substance 19-norandrosterone at a road cycling competition in Breckenridge, Colo. on Aug. 10, 2002.

Currently, Moninger is disputing the positive test result in the USADA adjudication process. If a sanction is imposed, USADA will make the announcement at a later date.
