The MPCC regrets that the organizers of the Giro d'Italia decided to keep inviting teams that aren't part of our movement. The Tour de France and the Vuelta committed to our philosophy and never had any regrets so far.

The shared journey between the MPCC and the company AG2R La Mondiale reached a turning point in March 2015. While the rider Lloyd Mondory had been tested positive, Vincent Lavenu’s team had to suspend itself - under the MPCC regulation - for the Critérium du Dauphiné. Thanks to this strict compliance with the rules the team committed to, the french structure reaffirmed its strong opposition to all forms of cheating. 

Recognised as a major actor in the cycling sponsoring since 1997, the company FDJ immediately decided to provide support for the MPCC at the inception of the movement in 2007. With Marc Madiot’s cycling team joining the movement, the French lottery considered its adhesion as something natural too.

Rally Cycling team, which won two stages of the Tour of California, is a member of the MPCC. Its sports director, Jonathan Patrick McCarty, believes that the Movement has a major role to play in North America.

The team members of the MPCC have submitted 48 riders to a cortisol level test on the 4 days of Dunkirk. All the riders have been allowed to start.

The TUEs debate

TUEs have been subject to debate over the last few months. This process governed by the WADA rules authorises an injured or sick athlete to use a banned medication under certain conditions. These practices can easily be abused. Cycling has been involved in many arguments on this matter but also other sports, especially rugby.
