The International Cycling Union said Wednesday that Rogers is provisionally suspended while his national federation investigates the case.
Rogers tested positive for clenbuterol at the Japan Cap on Oct. 20, the governing body said.
The previous week Rogers rode to an 11th-place finish at the five-day Tour of Beijing. Widespread use of clenbuterol in livestock farming in China and Mexico has made those countries a well-known risk for athletes as it’s easier to ingest the substance there.
