Astana Pro Team thanks CADF for explaining the situation with the report published in the media regarding Jakob Fuglsang and Alexey Lutsenko
- We are pleased, that today the CADF issued a statement explaining the situation with the confidential report published recently in the media. As it was noted, the organization has not found any confirmed anti-doping rule violations and as a result no disciplinary action has been initiated against either the riders or the team. We respect the activities carried out by the UCI and the CADF in the fight against doping in cycling and consider as absolutely normal to check all, even the most insignificant facts that could put a shadow on our sport. This activity is designed to make cycling cleaner. At the same time, we hope that the CADF will conduct a careful investigation of the way such information was made public in order to avoid repeating these situations in relation to any team or rider. The publication of unverified or incomplete information in the media has a detrimental effect on the image of not only professional athletes and their teams, but also of cycling as a whole. On behalf of the team I would like to thank our sponsors and fans for their trust and support in the moment when incorrect and largely unreliable information was spread in the media in the last few days, - commented Alexandr Vinokurov, general manager of Astana Pro Team.
