May 21/10 10:06 am - CCA Responds to Latest Doping Revelations


Posted by Editoress on 05/21/10
 

The CCA has been made aware of Floyd Landis’ personal revelations in respect of his 2006 Tour de France disqualification for doping. The rationale for Mr. Landis deciding to make this revelation at this time can only be known to him.

Included in the media reports on Mr. Landis’ revelations are numerous allegations attributed to Mr. Landis towards other riders which are unsubstantiated by any analytical findings. It would be premature to draw any conclusions from these allegations.

The Union Cycliste International (UCI) has invested heavily over recent years in the Biological Passport for each pro tour rider and by all accounts, including last year’s Tour de France, it has proven to be a significant deterrent.

The comments of Mr. Landis date back to his decision to engage in prohibited substances and practices almost a decade ago. Substantial improvements in detection and much enhanced testing protocols and activity are in place today to eradicate doping from the world of professional cycling. The fact that Mr. Landis was caught in 2006 supports this conclusion.

The Canadian Cycling Association does not condone the use of prohibited substances or practices and educates its national team riders to the severe consequences of a positive doping test. Further, the CCA has invested in an anti-doping promotion program Race Clean – Own Your Victory that is driven by national team athletes and supported by them. It is our goal, and that of the UCI, to ensure that athletes compete on a fair and clean playing field.
