News that he has failed a dope test.

Diuretic found in urine sample taken on July 14

Earlier today, the UCI advised Luxembourger Fränk Schleck (RadioShack-Nissan) of an Adverse Analytical Finding in a urine sample collected from him at an in-competition test at the Tour de France on July 14, 2012.

The WADA accredited laboratory in Châtenay-Malabry detected the presence of the diuretic Xipamide in Schleck's urine sample.

No, it's the other way around: "he dopes because he's a crap loser who can't cut it against the real riders who train harder, have a better cadence and don't whine".

Or something...

Would an expert be so kind to describe what the substance is, what performance it might or might not add, if it is able to mask things and how likely it is that it is a deliberate attempt to dope?

I'm looking for facts :)
