COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) -- Cyclist Roger Hernandez of Miami has accepted a two-year suspension from the sport after refusing to submit to a sample collection, in violation of anti-doping rules.

The U.S. Anti-Doping Agency said Thursday that the 45-year-old didn't take part in a doping control test on July 29 at the Masters Track Nationals in Trexlertown, Pa.

His two-year period of ineligibility began Aug. 21, the day after he last competed. All of his competitive results since July 29 have been disqualified.
