Technological fraud in cycling: the perceived success of the UCI’s action plan

On 21 March 2018 the Union Cycliste Internationale (‘UCI’) presented a robust action plan to combat technological fraud in cycling, unveiling the several detection methods it will use to counter technological fraud during the 2018 season and presenting innovative technologies in development. The plan was announced six months after the election of the new UCI President David Lappartient, who made the fight against technological fraud a central theme of his commitment to cycling’s national federations. Under former UCI President Brian Cookson, first steps in the fight against possible technological fraud were already made as new regulations and sanctions were introduced in the UCI Regulations as wells as significant staffing resources and systematic controls and checks had been introduced. The UCI’s Equipment Commission was also renamed to the UCI Equipment and Fight Against Technological Fraud Commission. Finally, with the newly presented action plan, it seems that the UCI wants to show that the fight to technological fraud has become a priority to guarantee the credibility of the sport, as Willem-Alexander Devlies, Lawyer at Lovius Advocaten, explains.
