McQuaid defends UCI's methods

Text size Aa Aa

Cycling federation president Pat McQuaid announced on Wednesday that the UCI did not make any mistakes in their dealing of the Lance Armstrong doping scandal, which saw the American stripped of his seven Tour de France titles.

The 63 year old, who took over as UCI president in 2005, added that the introduction of biological passports had proved a much stronger tool for targeting offenders than those used before.

The UCI introduced biological passports in 2008 to track any blood changes in riders against an original profile.

The French Senate’s report on doping will be released next month.
