"It was a second victory in some ways but the most important was the one that came in the middle of June when I won my case. I won it, even if some don’t like to hear it, and that’s the truth,”

Roman Kreuziger has told Cyclingnews that the UCI dropping his biological passport case was the second victory of his season, after taking a USA Pro Challenge stage in August.

 

"It was a second victory in some ways but the most important was the one that came in the middle of June when I won my case. I won it, even if some don’t like to hear it, and that’s the truth,” Kreuziger told Cyclingnews at the World Championships.

 

“However, we never got a real explanation as to why [they dropped the case]. My lawyer, maybe he knows or maybe the president of the Czech committee, but I never got the reason why.”

 

Kreuziger says that as far as he is concerned, the case is over, but he is aware that there will always be doubters and for those doubters, he would like the UCI to tell them why they dropped his case.

 

“For me it’s done but it would be nice, for the other athletes, to know what was going on and why they arrived at this conclusion.”

 

“When my lawyer called me to tell me I at first didn’t believe him. We had had a meeting on Sunday to prepare and we were hoping to win but also preparing for the worst case. When he called and said there was a chance of them closing the case we didn’t believe it until we heard it was official.”

 

He says he can now train with a clear head and can finally race properly for the first time with nothing over his head since spring 2013.

 

“I’d like to start the season pretty well and show what my level can be because the last year and a half I performed well but I wasn’t at my top level, because there was always some doubts in my head. I was maybe thinking about things too much and it used up a lot of energy. I’m looking forward to least starting this winter looking ahead and with a clear head.”
