Meanwhile, the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) said it backed the UCI’s decision to create an independent review commission.

“As an independent body itself, WADA supports the decision to set up an independent external commission to examine the problem of doping in cycling,” a WADA statement said.

“The most important thing is for this issue to be dealt with once and for all, and WADA looks forward to the release of further details on the commission’s make-up and terms of reference,” it said.
