From memory he was a top level amateur. You'll be pleased to know he's from Perth
There is more to the story, he had struggled since he was a child with health issues that went undiagnosed till he was in his 20s when he was diagnosed with autoimmune hepatitis. He was prescribed the banned substances by Dr Anish Singh. His health improved significantly with the drugs (as did his cycling), but when it came to light that he had been prescribed the banned meds, the Dr was struck off and Fitzgerald was banned by Cycling Australia.
It's hard to know how much blame to apportion Fitzgerald. He was sick and the drugs he was taking were prescribed by a Doctor, but he would have known most of what he was taking would be considered a PED and would be banned by all cycling bodies. Could he have got a TUE for all those drugs?
