Frank Schleck arrived at the Luxembourg anti-doping agency building on Monday as begins his bid to clear his name of doping.

The Luxembourg rider failed a doping test for a banned diuretic during the second rest day of this year’s Tour de France.

Schleck’s A and B sample confirmed he had failed a test for xipamide which does not trigger a provisional suspension according to the World Anti-Doping Agency regulations. Nonetheless cycling’s world governing body the UCI sent the case to the Luxembourg national federation, which passed it on to the country’s anti-doping agency.

After an initial hearing in August Schleck on Monday continued his defence. It is so far unclear when a final decision will be announced by the disciplinary committee.
