Countries set to lose doping powers
CYCLING'S world body wants national federations stripped of the power to investigate doping cases concerning their own riders by setting up an independent tribunal, believing it will limit time being wasted in the current process and the potential danger of local bias impairing their findings.
Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) president Pat McQuaid revealed the initiative during the world road cycling championships on Saturday when questioned about the ongoing doping case of Alberto Contador.
Which I think is a positive step forward, the only concern is that the independent tribunal must be independent of the UCI as well.
ps can a mod please put in a ´and´ after UCI ie "another interesting piece I found on the UCI and president Pat McQuaid " Thread
