Last April, Bruyneel received a 10 year ban, while Celaya and Marti both received 8 year bans from the sport, at the conclusion of the US Anti-Doping Agency’s (USADA) investigation that was brought before the American Arbitration Association North American Court of Arbitration for Sport.
WADA issued a statement today saying:
"In appealing the AAA’s decision to CAS, WADA requests that consideration be given to longer sanctions for all three individuals involved in order to best protect athletes, and ensure a clean sport of cycling.
"UCI and USADA are supportive of the appeal to seek longer sanctions, and will provide support to WADA during this process."
However, WADA stated that none of the involved organizations would be making further comments until the CAS makes a decision on the appeal.
