Cycling Australia has issued a statement regarding the Operacion Puerto affair, which named Allan Davis (part of the Astana-Würth team) as one of those involved. The federation issued a statement to the effect that the UCI has recommended Davis should be questioned in relation to the investigation. "However the UCI states it has not been established that Davis has committed any anti-doping violation.
"We are confident Allan will cooperate fully with the investigation," said Cycling Australia Chief Executive Officer, Graham Fredericks. "We will also be monitoring the situation to ensure he is afforded his rights.
"The investigation has uncovered some distressing allegations but we hope a fair and thorough judicial process will be conducted in Spain and if anyone is found guilty of doping offences they will be penalised.
"There is no room in cycling for cheats and Cycling Australia supports any actions that will rid the sport of drugs and allow our members to compete fairly and safely," said Mr Fredericks.
