COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) — Los Angeles cyclist Nick Brandt-Sorenson has accepted a two-year suspension from the sport after an anti-doping violation.

The U.S. Anti-Doping Agency said Friday that the 32-year-old tested positive for Efaproxiral, which artificially enhances delivery of oxygen to the tissues. His two-year period of ineligibility goes back to Sept. 4, when the sample that tested positive was collected at the Masters Road Nationals in Bend, Ore. His competitive results dating to the start of that event on Aug. 31 have been disqualified.
