Yuri Trofimov, who heads to the Caja Rural-Seguros RGA team next season from Tinkoff, is one of four riders to be stripped of results but not suspended for testing positive for the drug Meldonium, which was newly added to the WADA prohibited substance list this year.

Trofimov was stripped of his 52nd place on stage 7 of Paris-Nice and 104th on the opening stage of the Volta a Catalunya after testing positive on February 23.

His compatriot Sergey Shilov was disqualified from the Vuelta Ciclista a La Rioja, and two Polish para-cycling athletes were stripped of results from the track world championships in March, all for Meldonium positives early in the season.

WADA agreed to offer limited amnesty for Meldonium positives after it was shown that the drug could remain in the system of athletes who had taken it prior to the first of the year.
