UCI Releases Armstrong Data In Attempt To Refute Ashenden's Doping Claims |
The UCI has reacted to Michael Ashenden’s assertion that he had not seen Lance Armstrong’s blood profile during his time on the Biological Passport panel by revealing previously unpublished material pointing to the contrary. The UCI has stated that Ashenden, who quit the passport panel last year, studied Armstrong’s anonymous data before the 2009 Giro d’Italia, and reported the profile as ‘normal’. However Ashenden, who claimed not to have seen Armstrong’s data, has always asserted that the American doped during the Tour de France, a period in which it’s unclear whether his data was studied by Ashenden. > the whole thing points towards UCI, which did (or did not) collude with LA doping practices. biological passport controls were and is in the hands of the UCI - that has to change. has to be handed over to independent anti-doping agency like WADA > >> needs to be introduces at all levels.

LeMond would serve as interim UCI president, but Change group urges rider involvement
According to another member of the group, the former rider and journalist Paul Kimmage, the number one priority of CCN, after two days of talks, is to force Pat McQuaid and Hein Verbruggen, respectively president and honorary president of the UCI, to stand down.

“Nothing is going to happen until Verbruggen and McQuaid are removed: that’s number one on the list of things that need to be done to move forward,” said Kimmage. “We’re going to do whatever we can to keep that on the agenda.”


In the long-term, ... a single, fully independent drug-testing agency is “a prerequisite.”

More immediately, “We are seeking assistance from the riders to put into place for next year a system that will guarantee that the winner of a grand tour has not blood-doped, ”

[...] “Change has got to come from the inside,” << Meaning Cyclists !!!
