Greg Doucette Professional Career Difficulties
Despite being well-known in the powerlifting and fitness communities, Greg Doucette’s professional career has not been as fruitful. Greg began professional biking in 2017 and began competing in professional events the following year.
However, his career in this sport was cut short when he was suspended following the Tour of Keji, a bicycle race held in Nova Scotia, in which he finished 11th in his category.
Following the event, he was asked to submit to a doping test. Greg, who allegedly didn’t realize the race was being investigated by the Canadian Anti-doping Program, refused to allow the test to be administered and was thus suspended for violating the rules.
Doucette was allegedly receiving testosterone injections at the time of the race due to his body’s deficiency of the said hormone, which was caused by his prolonged use of PED (physical enhancing drugs) during his bodybuilding years.
Despite the fact that these injections were provided on the advice of a doctor, the race did not permit its participants to use such substances.
Despite Greg Doucette’s claims that he was unaware of the rules, the suspension was not lifted, and he is now barred from competing in professional cycling races for the next ten years.
