The use of banned substances is against the rules of sport. It undermines the principles which make participating in sport worthwhile and is one of the most common concerns among USA Cycling’s membership. That is why USA Cycling is collaborating with riders, teams, Race Directors and Local Associations, as well as the US Anti-Doping Agency (USADA), the International Testing Agency (ITA/UCI) and the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) to deter doping at every level of the sport. All athletes deserve a level playing field and sense of fairness in their competition.

Established in 2013 and revamped in 2016, the RaceClean Program funds anti-doping tests at both the elite and amateur levels of cycling. The program utilizes the testing resources of USADA, which employs sophisticated methods to test professional and amateur athletes across a wide range of sports. The program also utilizes USADA for adjudicating cases and implementing penalties. The goal of the RaceClean program is to create a level playing field from the grassroot to elite level of cycling.
