Anthony Gobert yesterday denied taking drugs and said he was "absolutely devastated" about being sacked by Suzuki after a positive test for an unspecified substance.

The 500cc rider said the result would be questioned and he was seeking legal advice because the results had not been released.

"I have been tested a number of times this year and each result came back clear," he said. "I would not jeopardise my future by using any banned substance."

Gobert is currently in Italy, with a broken leg suffered in an accident on Friday when riding a scooter with his brother, Aaron. The Australian attacked the timing of his sacking following the accident. "Aaron is still in hospital in a serious condition," he said.
