Paris - Cycling's international governing body says it has suspended Chinese rider Li Fuyu on Lance Armstrong's Team RadioShack for testing positive for a banned product in a Belgian race last month.

The International Cycling Union says Li tested positive for Clenbuterol - an anabolic agent which can be used to reduce body fat - during an in-competition test in the Dwars Door Vlaanderen on March 23.

The UCI said it notified the 31-year-old rider on Thursday of the "provisional" suspension that will remain in effect until China's cycling federation determines whether Li was doping.

The UCI said the rider can request a B sample of the positive test conducted in a WADA-accredited lab in Ghent, Belgium.
