USA Cycling announced, the creation of two new advisory committees, with the goal of increasing safety and ensuring “clean competition” in races in USA.
“The members of the new Safety and Anti-Doping Committees are volunteers from diverse backgrounds and are considered experts in their fields. They were chosen from a combined pool of more than 200 applicants and their role will be both to advise USA Cycling on actions to take and to evaluate the impact of those actions,” USA Cycling said.
The Safety Committee is composed of 11 experts from the fields of medicine, data analysis, cycling event promotion and officiating, and competitive cycling. The initial focus of the group will be to gather and evaluate existing data on bike racing accidents and to establish a set of recommendations for USA Cycling based on any risk factors identified. The following individuals make up the Safety Committee:
The Anti-Doping Committee is composed of eight anti-doping experts, including several world leaders in the field. This group will help USA Cycling to determine how it can best reduce banned doping practices within amateur and professional cycling in America. The committee’s focus will be to determine the optimal level of testing to cost-effectively create a credible deterrent, recommend what other actions USA Cycling can take to reduce doping (e.g., education) and evaluate the effectiveness of USA Cycling’s anti-doping efforts over time. The following individuals make up the Anti-Doping Committee:
