INTEGRITY

Integrity Measures

Top 3 and random riders may be required to weigh in with a video call within 15 minutes of the race finishing.  A text message letting the riders know they will be required to perform a weigh-in will be sent initially, so riders must have their phone available for a video call via FaceTime or WhatsApp.  Any rider who does not answer after 2 calls may be disqualified.:

  • Use of ineligible in-game equipment (e.g. in-game bikes).
  • Use of ineligible IRL equipment (e.g. use of a power metre instead of a trainer).
  • Miscalibrated trainer
  • Config changes during race

Anti-Doping

Anti-Doping Testing may be conducted at any round of the event.  Sport Integrity Australia may come to your location if they are testing.

Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE)

A TUE is an exemption that allows an athlete to use, for therapeutic purposes only, an otherwise prohibited substance or method (of administering a substance).  TUE approval may protect athletes from receiving a sanction if a prohibited substance is found in their sample.

If you are currently taking any medication, please check whether this substance is banned in or out of competition via www.globaldro.com/AU/search


Further information on the TUE process can be found on the Sport Integrity Australia (SIA) website https://www.sportintegrity.gov.au/resources/therapeutic-use-exemption or by calling 1300 027 23.


Sport Integrity Australia App

Any athlete and official can download the SIA app. The SIA App has been designed with athletes in mind.

The App gives a complete list of all supplements sold in Australia that have been screened for prohibited substances by an independent laboratory. The testing and certification of sports supplements cannot provide athletes a 100% safety guarantee but does significantly lower the risk of a positive test. For non-tested supplements the App gives athletes access to a quiz to assess the risk posed by highlighting key risk factors.

The App can also be used to report doping, check if a medication is banned in sport, give SIA feedback on testing missions, and complete online education modules.
