This Wednesday, french sports newspaperÂ L'Equipe has revealed that a rider from team BARDIANI-CSF - member of MPCC - was tested with an abnormally low cortisol level just before the Giro d'Italia, but despite that fact he has still been entered to the race. MPCC reacts.
Roger Legeay reflects on current issues that directly affect the credibility of pro cycling. He also comments on the position of the movement he presides and the perspective of other bodies such as the UCI (1), WADA (2) or even AIGCP (3).
Riders speaking! MPCC questioned the last rider to win Milano-Sanremo John Degenkolb, member of Team Giant-Alpecin and coming from a country - Germany - which tries to win back its fans.
As in 2014, MPCC lists the doping cas released sport by sport, in order to better situate the place it occupies compared to other sports. After two-and-a-half months, four sports already faced more positive tests than cycling.
