Multiple motocross champion James Stewart has been suspended 16 months for a failed drug test.

Stewart tested positive for amphetamine at a Supercross race in Seattle on April 12 and was provisionally suspended by the Federation of International Motorcycling in June. FIM’s International Disciplinary Court upheld the decision, announcing on Wednesday that Stewart will be suspended until Aug. 11, 2015.

Stewart, whose team has said the positive test came from his prescribed Adderall, is appealing the decision.

The suspension will cause Stewart to miss the 2015 Supercross season and all but two races of the AMA Motocross outdoor season. He also has been disqualified from all races he competed in since the positive drug test.

Stewart won Supercross titles in 2007 and 2009, and an outdoor title in 2008.
