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..

The result is: already 45 professional baseball players tested positive in 2014 (only 28 two months ago) and 33 in athletics (only 10 two months ago). The gap with the third most affected sport, weightlifting (13 cases), is considerable. Cycling is behind with ten cases revealed this year to the 31st of July : less than a third of athletics figures, less than a quarter of baseball figures.

First cases in 1st Division

Of the ten cases of proven doping affairs in cycling in 2014, three are relative to the World Tour, one involves a member of a Pro Continental team, and all the others refer to the third division. 


MPCC counting includes :


– Road cycling: seven cases identified for this most mediatised discipline.
– Track-cycling : one case.
– Mountain-Bike : two cases.


Four cases revealed in cycling concerned a member of MPCC team. Each time the MPCC regulations were followed to the letter, suspension and dismissal.
