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.
Sponsors representative within MPCC, Marc Frederix (Loterie Nationale Belge) draws on the exceptional longevity of the team Lotto-Soudal to affirm : Â« the image is a more important thing than the exposition Â».
Vice-President of MPCC, Iwan Spenkenbrink speaks about the increasing number of members and considers that the non-accession of 6 World Tour teams must not change anything about the fight to improve cycling's credibility.
â€śNo to tramadol !â€ť says Jan Mathieu, one of the representatives for MPCCâ€™s doctors. He strongly opposes the use of tramadol. He regrets this opinion is not shared by everyone else. â€śWe must no longer work on our ownâ€ť he adds on this matter.
