UCI acts in Vinokourov bribe allegations

International news logo

The Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) will examine any evidence that exists to determine whether Alexandre Vinokourov bought his Liège-Bastogne-Liège win last year. It issued a response last night after L'Illustré magazine alleged that Vinokourov paid Alexandr Kolobnev €100,000 (£85,892) to lose the sprint.

The UCI said in a press release that it asked the Swiss magazine to provide "any evidence which would allow the facts to be clearly established. Once the situation has been evaluated the UCI will decide, in accordance with the UCI Rules, whether any measures need to be taken."
