Wada, UCI dispute over new commission
2013-01-30 13:57:15 | (0 Comments)
The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), has accused the International Cycling Union (UCI), of being "deceitful" for claiming both would be working together on a truth and reconciliation process.
The UCI plans to replace its own doping inquiry into the Lance Armstrong scandal with the truth and reconciliation process.
However, WADA denies claims by the UCI that it supports the new commission and branded the Union as "arrogant".
In turn, the UCI accused WADA of "blatant and aggressive untruths".
The initial three-person commission had been established in response to a damning report from United States Anti Doping Agency into a decade of cheating by Armstrong and his US Postal Service Team.
The US Anti Doping Agency’s report, published in October, resulted in the American being stripped of his seven Tour de France titles and also seriously called into question the UCI's actions over the period.
WADA and the US Anti Doping Agency’s had previously said they would not co-operate with the UCI's inquiry. This led the UCI to conclude that any report would be dismissed as "not being complete or credible".
However, UCI chief Pat McQuaid says the new truth and reconciliation process had the full support of WADA president John Fahey - a statement WADA was quick to discredit.
