Doping edit

On 11 December 2015, Naser Rezavi tested positive for anabolic steroids and [3] was given a four-year ban.[4]

On February 10, 2017, the UCI announced that Rahim Emami had tested positive for an Anabolic Androgenic Steroid during the 2016 Jelajah Malaysia and was provisionally suspended. As teammate Naser Rezavi also tested positive in the Jelajah Malaysia in December 2015, the UCI considers this a second Adverse Analytical Finding in a 12-month period with the team potentially facing a ban of between 15 and 45 days.[5] Emami was handed a seven year and six month ban, expiring on May 24, 2024, when Emami will be 42, therefore the ban will effectively end his professional career.[4]
