Update From Broc Tickle On His Case With The FIM
Earlier today Broc Tickle posted an update about his alleged doping
case and his dealings with the FIM, and it's not good. Basically
they informed him that the results from his "B" urine sample
supported the results found in the "A" sample and that his case
will be presided by the same judge that handled James Stewart's
Broc is not happy on many levels with this whole situation. First of all he vehemently denies intentionally or negligently taking any banned substances or trying to cheat in any manner. He is also upset with the process and lack of communication during this ordeal. But most importantly he's angry about the guilty until proven innocent mentality behind the FIM and their process.
While he's been relatively quiet on the suspension and the FIM case since he made a statement back on April 27 (presumably because there's been no or little new info to discuss) according to his Instagram it appears he's has been training. However, with only a few more days to go before the Outdoor series kicks off at Hangtown, chances are we won't see Broc lining up.
Today, via e-mail, I was notified by the FIM that testing of my Sample B allegedly confirmed the alleged results of my Sample A test; however, as of today, neither the FIM or the laboratory has provided any supporting evidence for the alleged testing results. In addition, the FIM informed me that, Article 3.3.1 of the FIM Disciplinary and Arbitration Code, Mr. Anand Sashidharan has been appointed by the Director of the International Commission of Judges (CJI) as single judge to "deal" with case before the International Disciplinary Court (CDI). Mr. Sashidharan is the same person that presided over Mr. James Stewart's proceedings. Now that my case has been formally identified with the CDI, perhaps the process will proceed in a professional manner so that I can finally begin to defend myself. Their system presumes my guilt and presumes their supremacy all while hindering, impeding, and delaying an athlete's ability to discover evidence to argue against both. As I stated before, I have never, intentionally or negligently, ingested any prohibited substance, and specifically, the alleged substance I allegedly had in my system on February 10, 2018. I have never cheated, doped, or tried to better myself by taking the short way; nor, has anyone around me offered or provided to me any substance that is prohibited by the FIM Anti-Doping Code. I have worked too hard throughout my career to put my career at stake by taking any short cuts. I will do everything possible to fight this allegation, clear my name, and continue with my career. Should anyone have any information that may be relevant to my case, please contact my attorney, Brian D. Harrison
