Matt White, 2012

Cycling Australia dismissed Matt White from his role as head coach of the men's cycling team and took aim at the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) this morning. Last week, White confessed to doping while riding in Lance Armstrong's teams.

"I have really enjoyed working for Cycling Australia and it has been an honour to represent my country in the role I have had. I understand the current situation makes it difficult to sustain the position and I respect that Cycling Australia has to make certain decisions," the 38-year-old said in a press release.
