Armand Mégret passed away

The Mouvement Pour un Cyclisme Crédible (MPCC) is saddened by the passing of Armand Mégret at the age of 76 after a lengthy illness. In addition to his commitment to the Fédération Française de Cyclisme (FFC) and to the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI), Armand played a key role in the development of the MPCC in his capacity as lead doctor monitoring the organisation of cortisol level tests — a role he was holding since 2008. His active involvement in the movement’s various work meetings have contributed to significant progress on topics of interest to us, whether it is the health of the riders or the fight against doping. In particular, he was engaged in identifying and cracking down on new doping practices, which led to the tramadol ban earlier this year. He helped the MPCC gain credibility with its members and the public by bringing his rigor and expertise to the movement.

 

Armand will be missed and we extend our deepest sympathy to his family and close ones.
