As Tinkoff-Saxo team have announced on their official website, Roman Kreuziger was found not guilty for the alleged abnormalities in his biological passport by the Czech Olympic Committee. The 28-year old rider is free to compete again after he has been provisionally suspended by the UCI in the beginning of August.

 

"The Commission took into account the fact that the values of the Athlete Biological Passport do not exceed the so-called basal (extreme) values, taking into account expert opinions submitted by the International Cycling Federation and the athlete in question, who explained the abnormality,” the CAC said in a statement released today.

 

“In view of the fact that the conclusions of expert reports submitted by the athlete, and by the International Cycling Federation regarding the alleged abnormalities in the athlete biological passport, which contradicted the athlete and provided the Commission with an explanation of the alleged abnormalities, the Commission concludes that in the case, Roman Kreuziger is not in violation of anti-doping regulations.”

 

Questionable values came from a period before Kreuziger has joined Tinkoff-Saxo, but the Russian team believed in their rider’s innocence and thus decided against suspending him. The 28-year old Czech was allowed to continue racing, however, the squad decided to pull him out of the Tour de France to avoid media attention. He was due to participate in the Tour de Pologne, but the UCI had made a rare decision to provisionally suspend him a day before the Polish event kicked off.

 

In the statement released on Monday, the UCI didn’t comment on whether they would appeal the decidion made by Czech Olympic Committee.

 

"The Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) confirms receipt of the Arbitration Committee of the Czech Olympic Committee’s decision on the Roman Kreuziger case.

 

"The UCI takes note of the decision to acquit the rider and will consider the possibility of appealing the decision to the Court of Arbitration for Sport, as provided under the UCI Anti-Doping Rules. At this stage, with the relevant appeal windows opened, the UCI will not make any further comment on the case."
