Anti-Doping Resources

Having a fair and effective anti-doping program is vital to ensure that the rights of clean athletes and the integrity of competition are upheld. USA Cycling is opposed to the practice of doping in sport and fully supports and complies with the policies, protocols, and rules set forth by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) as the independent, non-profit anti-doping organization in the U.S. Guided by their mission to preserve the integrity of competition, inspire true sport, and protect the rights of U.S. athletes, USADA is charged with implementing a comprehensive anti-doping program for all Olympic, Paralympic, Pan American, and Parapan American sport National Governing Bodies, their athletes, and events. USADA's scope of responsibility includes: in-competition and out-of competition testing, result management processes, drug reference resources, and athlete education. USADA is a signatory to the World Anti-Doping Code (Code), which is a framework of anti-doping policies, rules, and regulations within sport. The Code, along with the supporting International Standards, is maintained by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) to ensure global harmonization of anti-doping rules. USADA’s website www.usada.org provides many resources to help athletes and athlete support personnel understand the anti-doping process and the role they play in helping to protect clean sport.
