DNA meeting scheduled for Friday

By Shane Stokes

As mentioned above, the UCI will hold a meeting on the subject of DNA testing this Friday in Geneva. Representatives from the AIGCP (Association of Trade Teams) and the CPA (Professional Riders’ Association) will be present, as will the UCI’s medical staff and DNA experts.

"The UCI's initiative will enable the parties concerned to have a joint discussion on the latest developments of Operación Puerto and on the various problems with the possible introduction of a DNA test for riders," the governing body said in a press release.

The UCI adds that it hopes the meeting "will make a concrete contribution to establish the basis of a vital consensus, in order to progress the discussions regarding the next measures that will be taken in the fight against doping."
