In March 2015, it was announced that Mondory had tested positive for erythropoietin (EPO) in an out-of-competition test taken on 17 February.[2] On 30 October 2015, the UCI announced that Mondory was suspended until 9 March 2019. Mondory did not return to cycling after his ban finished, electing to focus on his restaurant Oncle Scott's in Carentan, which opened in 2016.[3][4]
