Pat McQuaid, head of the UCI, announced that he will introduce a new and strict anti-doping plan for the 2007 season. "It will be a global plan in the fight against doping, ever more radical than before," he said. "We still have to develop some details."
He spoke at the Cross World Championships with Dick Pound, head the World Anti-Doping Agency, on Wednesday. "Pound, among others, has offered me full support in the Puerto affair," McQuaid said. "Thus we will be able to use the information from the Spanish authorities which at present is not possible."
