Jake Moss makes public statement regarding doping allegations

Posted:

Former Australian Motocross Champion Jake Moss has made a public statement regarding his absence from racing recently.

Moss was racing the 2016 MX Nationals under the National Pump Monster Energy Kawasaki Racing Team banner in the MX2 class. Kawasaki recently announced that would be stepping down from the team.

"As you may know, I recently announced my retirement from racing," Moss wrote on Facebook.

"As I said at the time, this decision to retire was based upon my decision to focus on my family and career away from competitive Motocross ad Supercross racing.

"I have recently been advised through Motorcycling Australia and ASADA that I have allegedly tested positive to Ostarine, which is prohibited substance under the World Anti-Doping Code.

"I do not accept the results of the test and I am in the process of challenging those results through the appropriate processes," he concluded.

The doping test was belived to have taken place at the Murray Bridge, SA, round of the Nationals on Sunday, May 22nd.

Ostarine, also known as MK-2866, is in class of drugs called SARMS, which stands for selective androgen receptor modulators. Ostarine is selective in that it binds only to bone and muscle androgen receptors, which prevents things like prostate issues or hair loss or any of the other nasty side effects anabolic steroids can result in.

According to many body building sources, Ostarine is the most anabolic of any SARMS, making its first and foremost use for wanting to gain lean muscle. The gains in total weight will not be comparable to bulking steroids, however the total gains will almost entirely be lean muscle. It is also used heavily in the cutting process.
