UCI wants new analyses of samples from the 2016 and 2017 in connection with the bloddopingskandalen Aderlass.
The International Cykelunion (UCI) has ordered new tests of old samples from the two years in the wake of the so-called Operation Aderlass (Operation Bloodletting, ed.) top of new revelations.
AFP News agency writes so that the UCI has asked cyklingens antidopingcenter (Cycling Anti-Doping Centre) to carry out new analyses of samples from the 2016 and 2017.
the Initiative is taken on the basis of new information and documents received from the austrian police, who were involved in Aderlass-operation, says the UCI, according to AFP.
Bloddopingskandalen, referred to as Aderlass, broke out in February, when the authorities carried out a raid in the austrian Seefeld in connection with the WORLD cup in ski.
the Cases relate to the German doctor Mark Schmidt. He is detained by police in Erfurt accused of having bloddopet at least 21 athletes from eight different countries across five sports.
the Sport is therefore also not gone unscathed. Two weeks ago was the Croatian cyclist Kristijan Durasek punished with four years in quarantine for a breach of anti-doping rules.
A month previously issued UCI suspensions to the two slovenes Borut Bozic and Kristijan Koren, who were both affiliated with the Bahrain-Merida team.
