Team Columbus Suspended from USA Cycling - From 39x23 and counting blog

Here is the meat of the story

September 6, 2008
Mr. Tym Tyler
On February 25th you were served with a notice of complaint regarding multiple violations of USA Cycling rules and policies. Due to the long time frame and nature of extensive issues raised, the investigation took considerable time. Mr. Shafer has provided us with his complete investigation and recommendations, a copy of which is included for your reference.
In the original complaint, you were given until March 4th to request a hearing. That date has long since passed without a formal response or a request for a hearing. In such cases, the CEO of USA Cycling renders the final decision after receiving the investigation report.
It is the decision of USA Cycling that the following sanctions will be applied:
· Your USA Cycling license shall be suspended for a period of 2 years, beginning September 15th, 2008 and ending September 14th , 2010.
· Team Columbus shall be suspended as a club for a period of 1 year, beginning September 15th , 2008 and ending September 14th , 2009.
· A fine of $2500 is levied against you and Team Columbus collectively
· USA Cycling and the Ohio Cycling Association will immediately cease to do business with you and Team Columbus. No further permits will be granted to you or Team Columbus.
