INTEGRITY

Integrity Measures

A rider who finishes in the top 3 in both categories (Men and Women) will be randomly chosen to provide a post-race weigh in.

A text message will be sent informing them of their weigh-in obligation along with an instructional email.

Riders will be required to complete the following:

  1. Take a short weigh-in video. Video MUST contain:
  • Footage of yourself stating your name and team (this can be done by yourself in a mirror, or by another person).
  • Provide confirmation of date (footage of a newspaper, another phone or tablet that displays the time and date, basically anything that can’t be disputed).
  • Weighing yourself on a set of scales with resultant weight clearly shown.

NOTE: Please try to keep the video as short as possible to reduce the file size for email. So, make sure you have everything ready to go before you start filming.

  1. Email the video file to [email protected] (we will reply to let you know it has been received).


This process MUST be completed within 30 minutes of receiving your text message post-race.

Failure to complete the above process will result in DISQUALIFICATION.

If there are any issues with completing the process or emailing the video (if you receive an email return message), please email [email protected] as soon as possible and we’ll assist any way we can.

AusCycling has also partnered with ZADA to undertake any random testing including:

  • Use of ineligible IRL equipment
  • 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.
