Earlier this week UCI president Brian Cookson indicated that the UCI will appeal the acquittal of Roman Kreuziger in his biological passport case. Now UCI and WADA have officially announced that they will indeed take the case to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS). 


The International Cycling Union (UCI) and the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) have decided to appeal to the Court of Arbitration for SPort (CAS) the decision of the Czech Olympic Committee to acquit Roman Kreuziger (Saxo-Tinkoff) for the anomalies found in his Biological Passport in 2011 and 2012.


Having reviewed the case and having carefully considered their actions, the UCI and WADA will present an appeal to 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 September, the Czdch Olympic Committee ruled that Kreuziger did not violate anti-doping rules and that he could resume competitive action. He returned in Milan-Turin on October 1 and did Il Lombardia, Paris-Bourges and Paris-Tours after having being provisionally suspended sinde the Tour de Suisse in June.


On June 28, shortly before the start of the Tour de France, Tinkoff-Saxo announced that they had received a notice from the UCI, indicatig that disciplinary proceedings would be opened against Kreuziger for anormalies detected in his biological passport in 2011 and 2012 when he was riding for Astana. Specifically, the Council of Experts were convinced that Kreuziger's blood values ​​showed irregularities from March to August 2011 and from April 2012 until the conclusion of that year's Giro d'Italia.


The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) dismissed an appeal against the provisional suspension laucnhed by Kreuziger and the Czech rider was unable to take the start of the Vuelta a Espana in August. Now a final decision in the case will be made in Lausanne.


The rider who received notice of those irregularities in 2013, has always maintained his innocence. Two independent medical experts hired by him have determined that the fluctuations in blood levels were not abnormal nor indicated an anti-doping rule violation. However, the Council of Experts of the UCI did not accept these arguments and one month later, the UCI announced the provisional suspension.
