Rogge: UCI doing its best

International Olympic Commission president Jacques Rogge has thrown his support behind cycling's governing body, assuring the sport of its position in the Olympics providing the UCI continues its battle against doping.

"You should not throw the baby out with the bath water," Rogge told AP. "It is not the UCI who is cheating. It is the riders who are cheating. As long as the UCI will do the utmost effort and have the same zero tolerance as the IOC, they will have their place at the Games."
