UCI & Wada to appeal Kreuziger case

The World Anti-Doping Agency and the International Cycling Union have appealed to the Court of Arbitration for Sport after

cyclist Roman Kreuziger was cleared of doping.

The Tinkoff-Saxo rider

was pulled from this year’s Tour de France

because of anomalies in his biological passport in 2011 and 2012.


decided to ban him provisionally 

in August pending an investigation.

However, the 28-year-old was reinstated by the Czech authorities last month.

The Czech Olympic Committee

ruled in September 

that Kreuziger did not violate anti-doping rules, stating that “the values in the cyclist’s biological passport did not exceed the basal (extreme) values.”

The data in question is from when he was riding for the Astana team.

Kreuziger began 2014 by finishing third at the Tirreno-Adriatico in Italy and claiming eighth in the Tour de Suisse.

The Czech rider came fifth in the 2013 Tour de France and was set to be Alberto Contador’s key lieutenant at this year’s race.
