Suspended cyclist Kreuziger puts biological passport info online in bid to clear name

Czech cyclist Roman Kreuziger has posted data from his biological passport on the internet in a bid to clear his name of suggestions that he may have taken performance-enhancing drugs. The International Cycling Union suspended the 28-year-old in August over what it describes as very serious anomalies in his records for 2011 and 2012, when he was with the Astana team. Kreuziger, who finished fifth in last year’s Tour de France but missed this year’s race, says his biological passport shows he did not breach any limits. The Czech Olympic Committee cleared him of breaking anti-doping regulations in September but the International Cycling Union is contesting that ruling at the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
