Monday, February 21, 2005 Professional cyclist Matt Decanio was fired in January from the Ofoto/Sierra Nevada cycling team for breaking what the team spokesman Josh Kadis called "ground rules" about what materials Decanio would be permitted to post on his anti-doping website, according to a report by VeloNews. The websites at issue are Stolen Underground and Decanio's anti-doping stance started with his admission to the use of EPO in the summer of 2003 in preparation for the Housatonic Valley Classic in Connecticut, USA.
