UCI Must Take Responsibility For Doping

John Fahey, president of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), says the International Cycling Union (UCI) and its leaders must hold its hand up for allowing doping to take place following the Lance Armstrong revelations.

 

Despite UCI president Pat McQuaid stripping Armstrong of his seven Tour de France titles, Fahey has claimed the sport will only regain credibility when senior officials take responsibility for the scandal.

 

“They clearly have to take the blinkers off, look at the past, examine the people who are there, ask themselves the questions: Are those same people still in the sport and can they proceed forward with those people remaining?” Fahey said.

 

“I don’t think there’s any credibility if they don’t do that and I think they need to get confidence back into the sport so that its millions of supporters around the world will watch and support the sport going forward.”
