DOPING

NEWS
29.10.2014 @ 20:50 Posted by Joseph Doherty

Cycling Canada announced the results from their four-month long investigation to doping in the sport today and the result was there was no organised doping system or “culture” in the country.

 

Cycling Canada and the Canadian Centre for Ethic in Sport (CCES) conducted the report together and it included anonymous testimonies gathered between May and August of this year. The info was based on the testimonies and therefore didn't include researching or studying the situation of doping in Canadian cycling", a press release stated.

 

Michael Barry was one of the names who emerged after USADA’s report into US Postal and Lance Armstrong and last year Ryder Hesjedal admitted to doping while he was a mountain biker after Michael Rasmussen claimed in his book that he taught Hesjedal and two other Canadians, Chris Sheppard and Seamus McGrath, to dope.

 

Canadian Cycling didn’t reveal which riders gave testimonies and while they didn’t find any doping culture, they said "the report found enough evidence of individual doping activities to warrant key strategic measures being taken to better address the issue of doping in cycling".

 

"The report found that there is no connection between the various Canadian doping cases," it stated. "The supply chain and the actors involved are all different. It supports the theory that all doping activities were isolated cases that were initiated by individuals, primarily by the athletes themselves."

 

"The findings of this breakthrough report provide us with better understanding of doping activities in the sport of cycling," said Greg Mathieu, Chief Executive Officer of Cycling Canada. "That being said, we must remain vigilant and significantly increase our efforts in the promotion and communication of anti-doping initiatives, such as RaceClean."
 

"We have been very clear in the past that Cycling Canada does not tolerate any athletes who try to cheat on their way to better performances," Mathieu added. "We believe that it is possible to win at Olympic Games, World Championships or any other international or national events without the use of any doping agents."

 

Cycling Canada will continue to work with the CCES to increase the number of drug tests. It has recently added mandatory education for juniors who compete at national championships and also increased the number of tests at the national championships.
