The wave of doping cases in cycling may not be over. UCI president Pat McQuaid said that "some" cyclists are being investigated under the results of the biological passport. xxxxxxxx
Speaking at an anti-doping conference in Berlin, McQuaid said that, "Based on conspicuous results from the newly-introduced blood profiles, there will be some positive cases," according to the "sid" press agency. He indicated that the irregularities lead to the assumption that forbidden substances or methods were used, according to the "dpa". He did not say which riders may be involved, or how many it might be. UCI attorneys are still looking into the matter.
McQuaid further criticised plans by the German public television senders ARD and ZDF to stop their live broadcasts of the Tour de France. "That is the wrong message. It is not right and also not helpful to either the organisers or the German cycling fans."
