UCI: No licence for dopers, and the teams will have to pay the doping bill


When the UCI aren't busy telling the audience that there isn't an elephant in the room, they sometimes spend their time deciding new rules. Like today, when they banned convicted dopers from getting a staff licence:

After ratifying the measures proposed on Thursday by the Professional Cycling Council (PCC) on the subject of riders returning to competition after a period of suspension for violation of the Anti-Doping Regulation (see press release dated 15th June), the UCI Management Committee approved the introduction of a new article in the regulations (1.1.006.2) aiming to prevent anyone found guilty of infringing the Anti-Doping Regulation during his cycling career from obtaining a licence authorising him to take on a role in cycling as a member of a team’s staff.

Here's the article, which of course also contains an exemption to the rule.

 

Another rule decided on today that is pretty interesting (especially in the light of a post from FMK earlier this year: AIGCP/UCI Biohazard Warning).

The UCI Management Committee, which is moreover very happy with the positive outcomes of the appeals lodged with the CAS (Court of Arbitration for Sport) concerning cases linked to the biological passport, also ratified the introduction of article 364bis to the Anti-Doping Regulation, which from now on makes the teams responsible for the total costs generated by each doping affair. These costs are currently born by the UCI.
