Vienna - Austria's anti-doping body has extended its ban of disgraced cyclist Bernhard Kohl until 2014.

Kohl finished third in the 2008 Tour de France and won the polka-dot jersey worn by the top climber, but was banned for two years by the National Anti-Doping Agency after admitting he used blood booster CERA. He retired in May 2009.

The Vienna-based NADA says in a recent statement that it has now imposed a lifelong ban on Kohl that will be lifted in four years and enable him to start riding again as July 4, 2014. A previous two-year ban was due to expire on July 3 of this year.
