FACTS

  • The Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) accuses Roman Kreuziger of the use of banned substances. Violation of anti-doping regulations is alleged to have taken place in the years 2011 and 2012. The accusation was supported by supposed irregularities in the biological passport.
  • The Arbitration Committee of the Czech Olympic Committee cleared Roman Kreuziger of wrongdoing. The UCI appealed against the ruling of the Arbitration Committee. A final decision will thus be issued by the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
  • The athlete was subject to regular testing, and the results were analysed using the software Athlete Passport Management Unit (APMU).
  • Roman Kreuziger has never tested positive. He has never exceeded the limit values on his biological passport.
  • A full two-thirds of the blood samples used as a basis for decision making were not stored during transport to the laboratory demonstrably in accordance with WADA regulations, and therefore might have degraded.
  • Since 2003 Roman Kreuziger has suffered from Hypothyroidism (reduced function of the thyroid gland), the worsening of which required high dosage medication of substitute hormone L-Thyroxine precisely in the years 2011 and 2012.
