Riders included in the UCI Registered Testing Pool (RTP) are required to provide their whereabouts information to the CADF.

One of the main reasons for collecting whereabouts information from Riders is to enable the CADF, World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) and National Anti-Doping Organizations (NADOs) to conduct effective in- and out-of competition testing. One of the strengths of an out-of-competition program is that tests should be conducted without prior notice. These are called No Advance Notice tests and contribute to the effectiveness of the current anti-doping program.

Please note that any rider may be required to provide a Sample at any time (including at night between 11pm and 5am) and at any place by the CADF or any other Anti-Doping Organisation with Testing Authority over him or her (article 5.2 ADR).
