FABIAN CANCELLARA

UCI President David Lappartient has confirmed that the world governing body is launching an investigation into allegations concerning Fabian Cancellara.

Former cyclist Phil Gaimon wrote about Cancellara in his book, accusing
'Spartacus' of having used mechanical doping in his career.

Lappartient told Cyclingnews.com that the UCI will investigate the case, adding that it wants to know exactly what is true of this story.

"What I would say regarding the case you are speaking about is that I will try to have more information and we will investigate.

"We will investigate because we need to know exactly what is behind this. Of course, I heard all the rumours, like everybody, and I just want to know exactly. So we will investigate, that is our job."

Lappartient realizes that it could have disastrous results if the stories of mechanical doping are confirmed.

"I hope that this never happened in professional cycling. If this was the case, it would be a disaster for the image of cycling and that's why we have to fight. I want the people and the fans on the road to be able to trust the result, trust the UCI and trust the controls from our institutions."
