Marion Sicot believes that 'justice was done' upon receiving a reduced two-year suspension after the Agence Française de Lutte contre le Dopage (AFLD) took into consideration the details of her harassment case that was filed with the UCI Ethics Commission against former Doltcini-Van Eyck team manager Marc Bracke.

"[Marion Sicot] is relieved and happy to see that justice was done. Every athlete knows how incredibly hard it is to reduce or overturn a doping sanction, where the standard 4-year ban is so often applied, irrespective of any circumstances," said Sicot’s attorney, Madalina Diaconu.
