On Thursday, August 24, representatives of the German cycling federation BDR and German cycling teams have discussed a series of measures aimed at contributing to the fight against doping in the sport with the two German TV stations ARD and ZDF. BDR president Rudolf Scharping exposed his agenda as well as joint measures elaborated with the teams, race organisers and sponsors.

These aim at improving the quality and the number of doping controls, taking more severe sanctions and supporting the implementation of an anti-doping law in criminal legislation. The publicly-owned TV stations, for their part, still have to decide over the amount of cycling races they will broadcast next season.
