AusCycling takes a position of zero tolerance toward doping in sport, and works closely with Sport Integrity Australia (SIA) in Australia and the World Anti-Doping Authority (WADA) internationally to ensure a drug-free environment in cycling, and all sports.
Click here for information on Cycling Australia's No Doping Declaration Policy.
We strongly encourage athletes to ensure that they are acutely aware of the most recent banned lists both here in Australia and around the world.
All relevant organisations and people involved with cycling including AC, athletes, team managers, medical officials and other support persons MUST be aware of the Prohibited List updates.
It is the responsibility of the athletes to check the status of any medication or substance prior to use.
For further information on WADA lists and other policies visit the WADA website.
Supplements are not fully regulated in Australia and there is a risk that some supplements may contain ingredients or impurities that could cause a positive test result. It is impossible to guarantee the safety of these products and the athlete remains ultimately responsible for any and all substances that they consume (or supply).
In support of AC's supplements policy, we have a dedicated Supplements Committee consisting of: David Hayes, Jill Leckey, Dr Mark Fisher, Anne Gripper, Louise Burke.
