World championships to go forward with additional antidoping controls

The host city of this year's UCI World Championships agreed to go forward with the race after the UCI agreed to impose additional antidoping controls. Stuttgart, which will host the championships from September 26-30, had come under increasing pressure from politicians who called for the additional measures following the high profile doping cases of this year's Tour de France.

Stuttgart's chief of sports Susanne Eisenmann told the Associated Press, "The controls are so all-encompassing that no one will dope and not be caught. This is a real chance for a new start."
