CADF: Update on operations due to coronavirus

Since the outbreak of COVID-19, declared a pandemic by the World Health Organisation (WHO) on 11 March, the impact of the coronavirus on society and sport has been considerable. Cycling is no exception, and this situation affects the activities of the entire cycling family worldwide. With respect to anti-doping activities, the Cycling Anti-Doping Foundation (CADF), the independent organisation in charge of the anti-doping strategy for cycling, is taking the situation very seriously. Together with the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) and the anti-doping community, the CADF is closely monitoring developments with the aim of continuing activities to protect clean cycling in the context of the coronavirus pandemic. Faced with this unprecedented situation, the CADF is adapting its anti-doping testing process and programme to remain in line with governmental measures and the guidance received from the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA).
