Prohibit a rider from racing after the positive result of the first analysis or “A” sample.
Do not sign a rider who has had a ban of more than six months during the two years following his ban. An exception is given to whereabouts cases.
If a rider needs corticosteroids (used for saddle sores and swelling), then pull him from competition for eight days.
An internal control following a positive test within the team.
If a team has more than one positive case from the past 12 months, withdraw it (the team) and assess the situation.

    Of course, if this turns out someday to be the industry standard integrated handlebar-computer-braking solution then I'll eat my kevlar-reinforced aerodynamic hat.

    “I don’t think riders should get their second chance; riders know the risk they take of using doping. Also the damage a positive test [makes] for the sport, we need to change things now. Because of this, we all think that the MPCC is a very good idea,” BMC Racing’s Thor Hushovd said in a statement from the MPCC.

    MPCC: The MTN-Qhubeka, the last to ask for your income


    The South African MTN-Qhubeka is the last professional team that has applied to join the Movement for Credible Cycling (MPCC). Continental teams and Wallonie-Bruxelles Biowanze Color Code have also asked what their income and are 31 formations that join this movement.

    Income multiplied since the Tour de France confirmed that the new cycling through the MPCC and definitely once all WorldTour races and up to 115 organizers agreed to give priority in their invitations to assemblies registered in the Movement who chairs Roger Legeay . So aspiring formations the wildcard are most interested and you are 15.

    Doug Ryder, manager of MTN, has addressed the following lines to MPCC:

    "The Team MTN-Qhubeka powered by Samsung, the first African team UCI Pro Continental, wants to join the MPCC, because we believe in a common position with other teams to compete clean and fair. We are a very young team, the average age of the 21 riders is 25 years, and for their future and the future of African cycling believe the MPCC code of conduct is the same in which we believe.

    We have the support of our national federation by William Newman President of Cycling South Africa and ask them to please include our team. "

    We are, therefore, 31 teams (6 of 18 WorldTour), 11 which belong by right and 16 more provisional, plus four demands. The final accession of those 16 will be voted on at the next general meeting of the MPCC February 7, 2013.

    Fixed: AG2R-La Mondiale, FDJ-BigMat, Garmin-Sharp, Lotto-Belisol, Argos-Shimano, Cofidis, Europcar, IAM Cycling, Endura Racing Team NetApp-, Sojasun and Bretagne-Seche Envinronnement.
    Provisional: ex Rabobank, Lampre-Merida, Androni-Giocattoli, Bardiani-CSF, Caja Rural, Colombia, Crelan-Euphony-Landbouwkrediet in 2012 -, MTN-Qhubeka, Novo Nordisk Team Team Type 1-Sanofi in 2012 -, Topsport Vlaanderen- Baloise, Verandas-Willems, BigMat, La Pomme, OCBC Singapore, Optum, Oster and Plussbank Hus-Ridley.
    Hits: 4-72 Colombia, Colour Code and Wallonie-Bruxelles Biowanze.

    A bit fat and very sad.."meh".. to this announcement.

    MPCC accepts Astana provisionally

    Quote
    With just over a month until membership is voted upon in the next general meeting on February 7th, the number of teams accepted as provisional members of the MPCC is continuing to grow.

    The latest two are the WorldTour Astana team plus the Continental Roubaix Lille Metropole setup. These join recent applicants MTN Qhubeka, the Pro Continental African team, as well as the Continental trio of Wallonie Bruxelles, Color Code Biowanze (both Belgian) and the 4072 Colombian squad.

    Now it is up to a vote. I do not trust votes.. if they really believed in what they are preaching then they would have extensively analysed Astana (and turned them down) before giving them a provisional licence. You do not want a team such as them within your ranks no matter what.

    the voting is made by the current members. So the other teams have to vote on the acceptance, which could be interesting. Assuming the teams know what other teams are doing.

    On the whole I agree with the mpcc proposals but would change one thing. The bit aboout teams not being able to sign riders returning from doping bans for two years (effectively making it a 4 year ban from top competition). That rule should be waived for riders that give full and valid confessions, implicate their sources, doctors, team managers etc. That way a rider that breaks omerta at least has a shot at carrying on his career, and we can start weeding out the suppliers, the doctors and the dodgy directors.

    Thanks.. never knew that. It will certainly make things interesting as you probably can get a general feel for which teams are doping and which teams are not. Lets hope there is no corruption going no behind the scenes Fifa like but then again I doubt it for something which is not all that significant.

    Totally agree here. The current climate in cycling does not support Omerta breakers as it really should.

    MPCC are just a bandwagon (for present times) organization of self-proclaimed clean-cycling fighters eager to take advantage of their speciously clean image which in fact is nothing short of clear speculation. I wonder why people don’t want to see it.

    Of course there is this to bear in mind.

    Race organisers give wild card priority to MPCC members.

    Quote from: December 1st 2012
    The international race organisers’ association, the AIOCC, has agreed to give priority to teams who are members of the Movement for Credible Cycling (MPCC) when distributing wildcard invitations to events.

    The association held its annual general meeting in Paris on Friday, bringing together the organisers of 115 events, including all of the races on the WorldTour calendar.

    According to AFP, the AIOCC meeting agreed that MPCC members who apply for wildcard berths at WorldTour events should be given priority.

    MPCC is like certain travel destinations. You get there and you think this is awesome and for a time it's the coolest place to be and then everyone ever arrives and it gets stale and you can't believe in it any longer.

    I much preferred it when it was a French-dominated pariah consisting of fairly clean and therefore not very successful teams. It had the stink of honesty about it.

    But they will then look at seeing members of mpcc as well for damages to cycling.

    Maybe I can sue lance and JV and Mark M and maybe Cofodis

    Translation of http://www.mpcc.fr/images/download/Reglement.doc

    MPCC 2013 Rules

    PREAMBLE

    These internal rules are fixed on a voluntary basis.

    Such World Tour, Professional Continental and Continental teams that apply, subject to the approval of the other team managers, can become members of the MPCC.

    ---

    The MPCC member teams are required to:

    1. Respect when making decisions the requirement for a majority 51% agreement of the other MPCC member teams

    2. Respect rider contracts, in particular to notify themselves via the UCI of the end dates of rider contracts, in order not to approach a rider under contract to another team

    3. Take responsibility to immediately pull out of a race a rider receiving first notification of a positive control

    4. Request that the UCI Pro Tour Council President convoke the Licence Commission in case of a World Tour team's failure to respect the Code of Conduct

    5. The MPCC teams agree not to employ riders currently involved in doping affairs and those who have been sanctioned for more than 6 months by their national bodies, excluding sanctions for no show and/or information not originating from a WADA-affiliated source), for two years following the suspension

    6. Teams will include in rider contracts the agreement of riders for DNA research at the first request of the employer

    7. Teams will henceforth include in rider contracts the warning that they could be pursued before an appropriate court or tribunal where a team's reputation has been damaged.

    8. Anyone sanctioned by sporting or judicial authority for acts or omissions constituting damage to the reputation of cycling and its partner organisations (doping, use and/or supply of banned substances,...) could be pursued before an appropriate court or tribunal.

    9. Medical rules:

    * TUEs are required to be validated by the chief doctor of the team
    * Local corticosteroid injections are required to be validated by the chief doctor of the team, who is required to prescribe 8 days minimum rest from training and competition
    * In the case of a drop in cortisol levels, a return to competition is not possible before at least 8 days' rest and subject to a blood test showing a normal result
    * Member teams will inform the MPCC as soon as the existence of a positive A-sample becomes known
    * In order to avoid on the same day a double UCI and MPCC blood control (cortisol levels only), the following actions will be taken:
    - 1st time: all the team is tested by the UCI and there will be no MPCC control
    - 2nd time: in the case of partial control by the UCI, the MPCC control will be effected only on the remaining riders on the team

    10. Self-suspension: in the case where an MPCC member team is faced with several positive tests or riders pronounced unfit, the team will suspend its activity temporarily (with a view to implementing all appropriate corrective measures). Auto-suspension shall apply as follows:

    - The whole team shall cease activity, but
    - The team will not pull out during the course of a World Tour race

    where

    Case #1
    In the 12 last months according to the dates of the controls there have been 2 positive anti-doping controls [Note 1] and/or abnormal blood controls [Note 2] (excluding sanctions for no-show and/or information not originating from a WADA-affiliated source)
    Self-suspension of 8 days from knowledge of the second control
    Self-suspension will begin from the first day of the next race on the World Tour calendar with the exception of the 3 Grand Tours

    Case #2
    In the last 24 months according to the dates of the controls there have been 3 positive anti-doping controls [Note 1] and/or abnormal blood controls [Note 2] (excluding sanctions for no-show and/or information not originating from a WADA-affiliated source)
    Self-suspension of 4 weeks from knowledge of the third control
    Self-suspension will begin from the first day of the next race on the World Tour calendar, expressly including the 3 Grand Tours

    11. Administrative obligations of MPCC members

    For any positive anti-doping or abnormal blood control or other related problems:
    - Explanation from the manager, person in charge, licence holder of the team during the next MPCC meeting
    - MPCC member teams shall engage in an open discussion of these explanations made by the team concerned
    For any involvement of a member in a managing capacity (general manager, directeur sporting, assistant directeur sportif and chief doctor) in a doping affair subject to proven facts:
    - Convocation before the Administrative Council of the MPCC of the general manager of the MPCC team concerned
    - MPCC member teams shall engage in an open discussion of these explanations made by the team concerned

    [Note 1] Après contre-expertise confirmée After confirmed counter-analysis
    [Note 2] After confirmation from the Commission for Sporting Safety and Conditions

    Yep - it will be interesting to see the reaction. Presumably it comes down to 1) don't sign him or 2) leave the MPCC. At least, I hope they're that clear cut.

    You'd think they would read the rules before they sign up to things like the MPCC. There are only 10 rules to memorise, after all. Just makes it look like they signed up as a PR stunt.

    And yet, Garmin were able to hire Thomas Dekker.

    Hey, does anyone know what races the MPCC suspension rules actually apply to?

    RusVelo were suspended from racing for 8 days from 13-21 of July but two members (Kovalev brothers) raced in 3 crits in Illinois during that time. 2 of those are on the UCI Road Criterium Calendar.
