Identifying cases of doping is not an easy task and is subject to discretion if required by their respective international federations, some do not advertise doping cases in their discipline. Cycling, in contrast, reveals each positive test. Our numbers are therefore based on proven cases in 2014, according to official communications federations and anti-doping agencies, etc..


In 2014, athletics was the sport most affected by positive tests (95), ahead of baseball (62). As at 1 May 2015, these two sports are at the front again with 17 positive tests for baseball and 16 for athletics. After four months, cycling, 4th most affected sport in 2014, is behind baseball, athletics, weightlifting, football and rugby.


The nation with the highest number of cases since the beginning of the year is Bulgaria: 11 weightlifters from this country have been tested positive. 


MPCC counting includes:


– Road cycling: three cases identified for this most publicised discipline.
– Track cycling: one case
– Mountain bike: no case


Each time a team member of MPCC has been concerned by a case, the MPCC regulations were followed to the letter : suspension, dismissal.
