UCI launches new anti-doping learning programme

During the its annual Congress on September 25, in Lugano, Switzerland, the International Cycling Union (UCI) has announced a new anti-doping education initiative called 'True Champion or Cheat?'.

Designed for riders of all levels as well as their support personnel, the programme is an interactive learning experience comprising a series of eight 10-15 minute video stories, which require participants to interact and undertake quizzes and exercises in order to successfully complete each module.

The primary aim of the programme is to ensure that riders fully understand their rights and responsibilities under the UCI Anti-Doping Rules and the World Anti-Doping Code, so that it will no longer be possible for them to claim ignorance of the rules in case of a positive test.

Completion of 'True Champion or Cheat?' is compulsory for all riders included in the UCI Registered Testing Pool (RTP). The programme, which can be accessed directly from, is currently available in five languages.
