UCI: 100 % against doping:

 

«The 100 % Against Doping initiative represents a quantum leap forward for the cycling world in its efforts to fight doping.

Our objective is clear: to give cycling the best antidoping programme in the world.

Only clean riders should win; those who cheat should be caught; those considering trying to cheat should be discouraged. Together we can eliminate doping from our sport».

Pat McQuaid, President of the International Cycling Union

The new UCI ProTour anti-doping programme represents a strong commitment of resources and effort from all those involved in the UCI ProTour. UCI ProTeams, UCI Professional Continental Teams, riders and organisers, are all saying «No» to doping by working together to implement a series of unprecedented measures.

This programme contains numerous new measures, which will complement the UCI’s existing anti-doping activities. Each one covers 100 % of riders.

The main features of the programme will be implemented as early as the start of the 2007 season.
