The test, which revealed traces of norandrosterone, was carried out in May.

Rütimann, who was suspended by the Swiss Cycling Federation, has one month to appeal the decision.

His compatriot, Roland Meier, also tested positive after participating in the Flèche Wallone race in Belgium.

His case is to be examined by an independent anti-doping control authority, which is attached to the SCF. The authority is expected to make a decision on Meier in August.
