UCI to set up Truth and Reconciliation framework

Pat McQuaid R

Following this morning's hearing of the UCI's independent commission cycling's governing body has said it will now aim to set up a Truth and Reconciliation commission with the help of the World Anti-Doping Agency.

This morning's meeting in London hit an impasse as no one could agree over a Truth and Reconciliation process. The commission has called for one and has been backed by both WADA and USADA (who had previously pulled out of the process because of the terms of reference set for the commission), but the UCI has said that it would breach WADA's code (that doesn't allow for an amnesty) and be too expensive.
