USA Cycling created the RaceClean program as part of its ongoing commitment to clean sport, ensuring a level playing field, and promoting athletes’ health and well-being. This will be accomplished through a dual approach of increased education, using the resources developed by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA), the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), and the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI), and increasing the frequency and effectiveness of in-competition and out-of-competition drug testing at all levels of competitive cycling in the United States that is governed by USA Cycling.
The goal of the RaceClean program is to eradicate the use of performance enhancing drugs and techniques in cycling.
The strength of USA Cycling’s RaceClean program is the commitment from and collaboration with the key stakeholders, including riders, teams, race directors, and the Local Associations. USA Cycling will match the financial contributions put forth by these key stakeholders.
USADA will conduct the in-competition and out-of-competition testing, as well as any adjudication. USADA will also select the events and athletes for testing.
HOW YOU CAN SUPPORT THE RaceClean PROGRAM
