WADA joins the UCI in appealing Roman Kreuziger case to CAS

After reviewing the full case file, the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI), joined by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), has decided to appeal the Czech Olympic Committee hearing panel's decision to acquit Roman Kreuziger following anomalies that were found in the rider’s Athlete Biological Passport (ABP).

Having carefully considered the decision, the UCI and WADA are filing an appeal with the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) with the request that consideration be given to a sanction for Kreuziger that is fully compliant with the rules of the World Anti-Doping Code.

In order to fully respect the integrity of the legal process, the UCI and WADA will refrain from commenting further until the appeal has been completed and a decision rendered by CAS.
