Change Cycling Now - Change the UCI

Postby AUbicycles » Thu Nov 29, 2012 9:03 pm

Just in:

In the wake of the Lance Armstrong doping scandal, a group of former pro cycle team members, doping experts and campaigning journalists will gather next week in London to force change upon the UCI.

Change Cycling Now, is holding the UCI responsible for the alleged mishandling of the sport’s global image in the wake of the Lance Armstrong doping scandal. At the London summit they will discuss proposals that offer an alternative approach to re-invigorate a sport that is suffering from a globally damaged reputation.

Global change
At the two-day summit they will discuss a roadmap for global change, including the requirement for a fundamental shift in cycling's world governance and the implementation of independent anti-doping controls.

Among those who will be in London when the group meets on Sunday, December 2nd will be one of the world’s foremost blood doping experts, Michael Ashenden, who formerly acted on the UCI panel and Professor Antoine Vayer, a former cycling trainer, who attended the famous Festina doping trial in 2000 as a professional expert and morality witness. He is also a regular contributor to French newspaper, Le Monde.

I discovered that Change Cycling Now has a website and is running a petition to show 'fan support'.

Some atheletes will always try to cheat the systems and the UCI hasn't been as efficient as it could be in dealing with this. If this helps the sport then yes!
