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..


Already ahead of this classification in 2014, athletics is the most affected sport in 2015 with a total of 62 positive tests, ahead of weightlifting with 55 cases and baseball with 30. As last year, cycling remains fourth with 21 cases, almost a third of athletics figures. Football is fith only one case behind cycling.

– Track-cycling : three case.
– Mountain-Bike : two cases.


Only 8 cases out of 21 concerned riders from World Tour or Continental Pro divisions, which are able to compete in the best races of the worldwide calendar.
