Volksbank joins MPCC

Team Volksbank is the 12th team to join the MPCC, the 'Movement for a Credible Cycling'. "I am extremely happy, that we can take this step and could convince the MPCC that our efforts in the fight against doping are absolutely restrictive, with no holes and serious, that we are totally dedicated to the clean future of cycling," said team manager Thomas Kofler. "This goal has absolute top priority for us at Team Volksbank and can only be reached when we all work together, with the elite circle of the MPCC."

The Austrian Professional Continental team will now introduce the biological passport. That involves twelve annual unannounced controls, both urine and blood, and requires the riders to report their whereabouts three months in advance.
