USADA, UCI sign information-sharing agreement

by CyclingTips

The Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) and U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) announced an information-sharing partnership that will allow for extensive cooperation between the two organisations, sharing appropriate whereabouts information, testing results and other data.


“Signing a sharing agreement with one of the most important stakeholders in the field of anti-doping is another testimony to the tremendous progress we have made in the past three years in rebuilding trust in the UCI,” said Brian Cookson.

“This partnership strengthens our intelligence-led approach and we now have an unprecedented level of collaboration with anti-doping organisations around the world.”

“I am excited that the progress made by the UCI over the last several years has allowed our organisations to now come together to best serve clean athletes,” said USADA CEO Travis Tygart. “We know from experience that when sport organisations partner with independent anti-doping organisations, it brings confidence to athletes that their rights are being protected, and that they can compete and win on a level playing field.”

Under the agreement, USADA and the UCI – through the Cycling Anti-Doping Foundation (CADF) – will also work together on testing plans for UCI-sanctioned events in the United States.
