Museeuw to retire after World's 2002

The most accomplished classics rider in the peloton, Johan Museeuw, has said that he'll retire after the World Championships in 2002, when they will be held in Zolder, Belgium. He is currently racing in the Ronde van Nederland where he spoke about his future. He hopes to be selected in the Belgian team for this year's World's in Lisbon, but says that "Jose de Cauwer [national selector] will decide about my World Championship."

Next year will be his 15th season, having turned pro in 1988 with ADR (Greg Lemond's old team). He started out as a pure sprinter, winning a couple of stages in the 1990 Tour de France amongst others. A win in the Meisterschaft von Zürich in 1991 (on a flatter parcours than the modern version) was his first classic, and over the past 10 years he has won Meisterschaft von Zürich (1991, 1995), Paris-Roubaix (1996, 2000), Ronde van Vlaanderen (1993, 1995, 1998), Paris-Tours (1993), Amstel Gold Race (1994), overall World Cup (1995, 1996), and the World Championships (1996).

"José De Cauwer has the key in his hand. If he thinks that the circuit is too hard for me, then I'll stay at home. I haven't heard from him yet...I'll still ride all the one day races, up to and including Paris-Tours."

Museeuw knows that his best years are behind him, as he was forced to abandon this year's Zürich race, as well as the Tour de France. "At my age you have to make choices...The Tour is a closed book. I wish that I could have overcome it. I have no regrets about my last Tour."

"I want to make a beautiful exit. That means not one year too many, unlike Sean Kelly before me. I will not go through with that. I know that I can be stronger than I was this season, on condition that I can for the first time in four years have a proper winter. At last a rest instead of a few days off. Not every day in the gym. At last there is no uncertainty about whether I can come back. A finish with the World Championships in my homeland is special for me. After the spring classics season I will begin preparation for Zolder.

When questioned about Domo-Farm Frites' season this year, he commented that it hasn't been as bad as people think although it has been without some big wins. Domo is second in the team's GC in the World Cup (11th in the UCI team rankings), they crushed the opposition in the biggest and toughest classic of the year, Paris-Roubaix; World Champion Romans Vainsteins finished second in Hamburg and third in San Remo, and has amassed 850 UCI points this year: "You cannot say that our World Champion was bad."

Finally, who will be the Belgian rider to follow Johan Museeuw? "Serge Baguet is a very good rider, but not yet at the top. He can make the connection. I always thought that VdB could take over my role in the classics. For the first time in ages I saw him on TV on Sunday. I have not heard the guy talk like that for the five years. That was a normal man. Besides Maesschalck and Helmut Lotti, everybody has let him fall. Lieven Maesschalck is someone who can surmount spectacular challenges. Mentally very strong, the mundane things don't interest him."

"VdB now has the proper people around him. After two months of training with Lieven he will have the correct base condition. Frank is distressed and someone is standing over him, but soon on the bike he has to find himself. It will be tough, but he can do it."

Verbruggen reacts to Mercury situation

"The riders have it in for us," were UCI president Hein Verbruggen's comments in a recent article in Belgian newspaper De Standaard. "I know that last month some of them still received their wages as per normal. And they can all carry on racing, so that other potential employers will notice them. The only thing we might be able to do after the season finishes is to refuse to give a manager a new licence if he hasn't met his obligations."

Verbruggen was commenting on the unfortunate situation that has arisen ever since Mercury lost its co-sponsor Viatel in June due to bankruptcy. Since then, some of the riders haven't been paid, although they are still expected to provide free advertising for US car company Mercury. "There's money for logistics, new jerseys (without Viatel) and staff, but nothing for the riders," writes De Standaard.

"I am looking for a solution," says team manager and paying agent John Wordin. "I can't just wave a magic wand and create a mountain of dollars from nowhere. This isn't the way I'd want it to be. It is not my fault that co-sponsor Viatel went bankrupt. Everyone is free to leave the team if they want. The riders themselves have decided to stay in order to finish off their season. I can understand that. Life goes on after this year."

This is true, although it is hardly an ideal situation. UCI rule 2.16.031 states that "Trade Teams whose guarantee is drawn upon shall be automatically suspended if the guarantee is not made up to its full amount within one month." This is a Catch-22 for the riders, as if they claim too soon, then they could force the team's premature dissolution. It's better to race and not get paid, rather than not race, not get paid and jeopardise their chances of getting a contract next season.

Some riders (Chann McRae, Nicklas Axelsson, Pavel Tonkov) have obtained rides with other teams for the Vuelta, while others (Peter Van Petegem, Geert Van Bondt, Jans Koerts, Fabrizio Guidi) have indicated their displeasure, but have chosen to stay with Mercury, both to win prize money and UCI points for next season. Assistant directors Alain Gallopin and Johan Lammerts have been sacked after they also expressed their feelings publicly about the situation.

Some riders have already contacted the UCI in an attempt to gain access to their salaries via the bank guarantee, which was deposited at the beginning of the year and is equivalent to a quarter of the team's budget. Chris Horner was one of the first to do so, and he did manage to get some compensation.

Geert van Bondt: "We have no other choice. The UCI have closed their eyes to our situation. I think that we can say goodbye to any hope of the money. Maybe we can get three months' salary from the bank guarantee held in Lausanne."

Hence Verbruggen's reaction, and he added that riders have to be quicker at lodging a complaint with the UCI: "Only then can we release funds from the bank guarantee, which has already been done twice in this case. The option is open until April 1 next year. Riders really need to learn not to wait for months before putting in a claim. Non-payment of wages gives them the right to terminate their contract and try their luck elsewhere. They are not obliged to stay with Mercury."

Wordin has got the funds from Mercury to continue next season and beyond, although in 2002 the funding will only be at the 1999 level. But the UCI will have to judge whether "he has met his obligations" if they are to renew the team's licence for next season.

Sport complex named after Freire

Oscar Freire (Mapei) will be honoured next Monday, September 3 when a multi-sport complex is named after him in his home of Torrelavega. The inauguration and celebration will be held in the evening, to demonstrate the US$200,000 lighting system of the complex. Containing a velodrome, athletics track, football field amongst other things, the entire complex cost US$2.2 million and is expected to bring Torrelavega to the fore as a centre for sport in the region.

Torrelavega is currently preparing for the Vuelta Espana, which will host the stage 7 time trial on September 14, as well as the end of stage 6 on September 13.

Stagiaires for Landbouwkrediet-Colnago

Three stagiaires have been named to ride for Belgian division II squad, Landbouwkrediet-Colnago: Brian Fagan (USA), Glenn Chadwick (Aus) and Mark Roland (Aus). The team has also signed two of the World's best U23 riders, Yaroslav Popovych and Lorenzo Bernucci for next season.

De Duytsche out of World's

Belgian track endurance rider, Luc De Duytsche, has been forced to pull out of the squad for the World Championships in Antwerp due to a thigh injury. He was part of the 4000m team pursuit.

David McCann breaks Irish 10 mile record

David McCann (CCC-Mat), Ireland's dominant professional, broke the Irish 10-mile time-trial record on Thursday evening.

The Belfast professional, who rode his first World Cup event, the GP Zurich, at the weekend, recorded 19.38.13 on the Nutts Corner course. Three weeks ago McCann bettered Tommy Evans' existing record of 19.59 but it is doubtful if all the necessary conditions for an official record were in place.

However, aware of the possibility of a repeat, the promoters of this round of the Dave Kane Time Trial League had all the necessary officials in place with three timekeepers and a commissaire. Paul Kane (Northern Dave kane) was second in 21.16 and Irish 10 miles champion Jonathan Dempsey (Classic Walls) was third in 21.20.

US MTB team for World's

After seven years, America's mountain bike heroes once again get the chance to prove themselves on home soil when the 2001 Elite and Junior World Mountain Bike Championships take place from September 8-16 in Vail, Colorado. USA Cycling has announced the official team off 77 racers who will compete on behalf of the United States.

Among the cross-country team is two-time Olympian Alison Dunlap (Colorado Springs, Colo.), who placed seventh at the 2000 Sydney Games. Fellow Olympian Ruthie Matthes (Durango, Colo.) also made this year's squad. Matthes announced her retirement earlier this year, thus making the World Championship event the last race of her professional career. Other automatic qualifiers included World Cup heavies Susan Haywood (Davis, W. Va.) and Audrey Augustin (Williston, Vt.). Haywood recently took home a national title in the women's short-track cross-country, while Augustin returns to the world championship team for her second appearance. The men's team is led by recently-crowned U.S. cross-country champion Kirk Molday (Temecula, Calif.), who also went as part of last year's team to Spain. Past national collegiate champion Todd Wells (Tucson, Ariz.) also earned a spot on this year's team. After scoring success earlier in the year on the national circuit, Wells quit his full-time job at IBM to focus on his racing, a move that clearly paid off. Two-time Olympian Tinker Juarez (Downey, Calif.) is back after winning the first-ever national 24 Hours of Adrenalin national championship in early August. Olympian compatriot Travis Brown (Boulder, Colo.) is also back for his sixth time.

Junior sensations Magen Long (Oklahoma City) and Nick Waite (Davis, W. Va.) headline the younger ranks. Waite won this year's junior national cross-country title only one week ago in Mount Snow, Vt.

Like Matthes, Leigh Donovan (Capistrano Beach, Calif.) will be ending an awesome career after this year's World Championships. Not one to just sit pretty, Donovan, who won the 2001 dual slalom national title, will look to cause waves in not only in the women's downhill but in the dual as well. Reigning three-time national champion Missy "The Missle" Giove (Durango, Colo.) will join Donovan on the Vail slopes, as well as 2000 World Championship bronze medalist Marla Streb (San Geronimo, Calif.) and 2000 junior world champion Kathy Pruitt (Lake Almanor, Calif.)

Don't blink during the men's downhill, as reigning World Champion and speedster Myles Rockwell (Durango, Colo.) will return to defend his 2000 world title. Rising star and recently-crowned national champion Todd LeDuc (Cherry Valley, Calif.) will also test the limits of speed on Vail's downhill, which has been dubbed the "American Flyer".

The dual competition will be tight, as the Americans have been stomping any who tread near this year. Several-time national champion Brian Lopes (Laguna Beach, Calif.) returns to world championship action in an effort to better his silver medal performance from last year. The women's final could end up with two Americans given the talent between Donovan and past World Cup winner Tara Llanes (Newport Beach, Calif.).

The observed trials team will kick things off for the entire team, with competition held the first few days of the event. Trials veteran Jeff Lenosky (Spartan, N.J.) will give his rivals a run for their money, and phenom Jerome "J.J." Gregorowicz (Benton, Pa.) has designs on a world champion title himself. Gregorowicz nabbed a national title earlier in August at the national championship finals in Vermont.

Colorado and California pumped out the most team members, with both states represented by more than 20 riders each.

Swimmers will be EPO tested at Goodwill Games

Less than two months after the uproar over the lack of EPO testing at the World Swimming Championships in Fukoka (Japan), the International Swimming Federation (FINA) has given its consent for the Australian Sports Drug Agency to conduct EPO tests during the Goodwill Games this weekend. It is a surprising decision, given FINA's position at the World's and also at the recent World Anti-Doping Agency conference in Talinn. FINA appeared to be against EPO testing on legal grounds, while other sports, in particular cycling and cross-country skiing, urged them to adopt it.

Top Australian swimmer Ian Thorpe was one of the biggest proponents for EPO testing during the World's in July, but FINA claimed that there were only two IOC accredited laboratories (Sydney and Châtenay-Malabry in Paris) able to carry out the proper tests, and these were considered too remote from Fukoka.

New IOC banned list

September 1 sees the introduction of the IOC's official list of prohibited substances and methods in sport. This list was approved in June by the World Anti-Doping Agency and the IOC and encompasses substances that are completely banned as well as those allowed under restriction. The main changes include the new procedure for authorisation to take asthma medication, for which a complete medical history is necessary.

The following is a selection from the list. Some of these (e.g. some stimulants) are allowable within certain limits:


Amineptine, amfepramone, amiphenazole, amphetamine, bambuterol, bromantan, bupropion, caffeine*, carphedon, cathine**, cocaine, cropropamide, crotethamide, ephedrine***, etamivan, etilamphetamine, etilefrine, fencamfamin, fenetylline, fenfluramine, formoterol*****, heptaminol, mefenorex, mephentermine, mesocarb, methamphetamine, methoxyphenamine, methylenedioxyamphetamine, methylephedrine***, methylphenidate, nikethamide, norfenfluramine, parahydroxyamphetamine, pemoline, pentetrazol, phendimetrazine, phentermine, phenylephrine, phenylpropanolamine****, pholedrine, pipradrol, prolintane, propylhexedrine, pseudoephedrine****, reproterol, salbutamol*****, salmeterol*****, selegiline, strychnine, terbutaline*****

*For caffeine the definition of a positive is a concentration in urine greater than 12 micrograms per millilitre.
**For cathine, the definition of a positive is a concentration in urine greater than 5 micrograms per millilitre.
***For ephedrine and methylephedrine, the definition of a positive is a concentration in urine greater than 10 micrograms per millilitre.
****For phenylpropanolamine and pseudoephedrine, the definition of a positive is a concentration in urine greater than 25 micrograms per millilitre.
*****Permitted by inhaler only to prevent and/or treat asthma and exercise-induced asthma.. Written notification by a respiratory or team physician that the athlete has asthma and/or exercise-induced asthma, is necessary to the relevant medical authority prior to competition.. At the Olympics Games, athletes who request permission to inhale a permitted beta agonist will be assessed by an independent medical panel.


Buprenorphine, dextromoramide, diamorphine (heroin), hydrocodone, methadone, morphine, pentazocine, pethidine.

Anabolic Agents

Androstenediol, androstenedione, bambuterol, boldenone, clenbuterol, clostebol, danazol, dehydrochlormethyltestosterone, dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), dihydrotestosterone, drostanolone, fenoterol, fluoxymesterone, formebolone, formoterol, gestrinone, mesterolone, metandienone, metenolone, methandriol, methyltestosterone, mibolerone, nandrolone, 19-norandrostenediol, 19-norandrostenedione, norethandrolone, oxandrolone, oxymesterone, oxymetholone, reproterol, salbutamol, salmeterol, stanozolol, terbutaline, testosterone*, trenbolone.

*The presence of a testosterone (T) to epitestostrone (E) ratio greater than six (6) to one (1) in the urine of a competitor constitutes an offence unless there is evidence that this ratio is due to a physiological or pathological condition, e.g. low epitestosterone excretion, androgen producing tumour, enzyme deficiencies.


Acetazolamide, bendroflumethiazide, bumetanide, canrenone, chlortalidone, ethacrynic acid, furosemide, hydrochlorothiazide, indapamide, mannitol (by intravenous injection), mersalyl, spironolactone, triamterene.

Masking Agents

Bromantan, diuretics (see above), epitestosterone, probenecid.

Peptide Hormones, Mimetics and Analogues
