As a guest member, part of the Professional Cycling Council, the MPCC reached out to the UCI’s president to do an interview regarding the stance of the UCI on various topics on which the MPCC has been engaged for a long time.

With David Lappartient, we have been able to talk about the ethics problems, his support towards the MPCC and several rules of the MPCC that the UCI would either like to include in its own regulations, or to promote them to the WADA to incorporate them in the World Anti-Doping Code.

More precisely, we focused on our common will to forbid the use of corticoids and tramadol during a competition, and our wish to see the provisional ban automatic when it comes to a positive or abnormal control of a rider.

We warmly thank David Lappartient for his time and his answers to our questions.
