Raft of new anti-doping measures introduced by UCI in wake of CIRC report

Cycling's governing body, the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI), has introduced new anti-doping measures in the wake of the report published by the Cycling Independent Reform Commission (CIRC) this week.

The UCI came under criticism in the extensive report for its historic mismanagement of anti-doping procedures as well as allegations of corruption within the organisation. These new measures, it says, are part of it "rebuilding trust in our great sport" and demonstrate that the "UCI is now a very different organisation".

Nigel Wynn
Former Associate Editor

Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on CyclingWeekly.com, he worked almost single-handedly on the Cycling Weekly website in its early days. His passion for cycling, his writing and his creativity, as well as his hard work and dedication, were the original driving force behind the website’s success. Without him, CyclingWeekly.com would certainly not exist on the size and scale that it enjoys today. Nigel sadly passed away, following a brave battle with a cancer-related illness, in 2018. He was a highly valued colleague, and more importantly, an exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
