January 27/11 12:30 pm - Contador Case: Clarification by the UCI


Posted by Editoress on 01/27/11
 

Following the confusion generated by yesterday's announcement by the Spanish Cycling Federation (RFEC) on the case of Alberto Contador - particularly concerning the "interim decision" of which the rider was notified - widely covered by the media, the UCI is obliged to clarify that this information cannot in any way be considered as an anticipation of the definitive decision in the case.

To date, Alberto Contador has not received a sanction and the UCI still awaits - in accordance with the provisions of its own regulations and those of the World Anti-Doping Code - to be informed of the decision of the RFEC Disciplinary Commission that should be provided as soon as possible.

The document that was forwarded to the UCI this afternoon by the RFEC only represents one element of the disciplinary proceedings undertaken by the Spanish Federation - and upon which the rider may express an opinion before being subject to the ruling - and cannot be used for the purpose of a potential appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) in Lausanne.

Only the definitive decision, that must be issued by the RFEC, can fulfill this purpose - within the time period established by the regulations - for the UCI, for WADA and for the rider himself.

Considering the major media interest in the case, the UCI regrets the inappropriate speculation that has characterized the proceedings and expresses its desire that this affair be drawn to a conclusion in an orderly fashion.
