Cycling anti-doping group the Movement for a Credible Cycling (MPCC) has called on the UCI to quickly change the rules so that they can prevent riders who are subject to an anti-doping investigation, such as Chris Froome, from taking part in races.

Froome will compete in his second race of the season at Tirreno-Adriatico, which starts on Wednesday, as he prepares for an attempt to win both the Giro d'Italia and Tour de France in 2018.
