UCI president Pat McQuaid travelled to Geneva today to meet with the organisation's Professional Continental teams and to extend to them the "Riders' commitment to a new cycling" and the "Managers' and other team staff's commitment to a new cycling" antidoping pledge. McQuaid appealed to the teams to sign the documents, which were signed by the most ProTour teams and staff, albeit at times begrudgingly.
According to a UCI press release, 641 riders, managers and other staff members have signed the pledge which states that they will forfeit a year's salary if they violate antidoping rules. The agreement hasn't had a chance to stand up to any legal challenges following the recent Tour de France positives of Alexander Vinokourov and Cristian Moreni, both of whom signed the charter.
