Lappartient wants CADF to investigate Team Sky

UCI President David Lappartient wants to have the Cycling Anti-Doping Foundation, the UCI’s independent testing and adjudication body, investigate Team Sky in the wake of the publication of the report summarising the findings of the Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Select Committee on combating doping in sport.

Although UKAD last year declined to find Team Sky violated anti-doping rules and has kept their inquiry closed after the publication of the report, the Select Committee highlighted behaviour from the team that, while technically not in violation of the rules, pushed ethical boundaries.

“Contrary to the testimony of David Brailsford in front of the Committee, we believe that drugs were being used by Team Sky, within the WADA rules, to enhance the performance of riders, and not just to treat medical need,” the report stated.

In an interview with the BBC, Lappartient noted the report and suggested that the CADF should look into its findings.

“We have the Cycling Anti-Doping Foundation, they have the power of investigation. I would like them to do this, to see if there is some violation of anti-doping rules.”

Team Sky have told Cyclingnews that they will respond to the UCI if contacted.
