UCI statement on Healthmate - Cyclive Team

Jun 28, 2019, 09:59 AM

The UCI has received confirmation from its Ethics Commission that proceedings have formally been initiated in the case of Mr Patrick Van Gansen, General Manager of Healthmate - Cyclive Team.

By this decision, the Ethics Commission confirms that based on a prima facie examination of information at its disposal – most of which has been received in the past few weeks – there is an indication that breaches of the UCI Code of Ethics may have been committed. 

The Ethics Commission will now conduct its investigation through written and oral questioning, as determined by the Chairman of the panel that has been appointed to deal with the case. 

As for any ongoing case of such nature, the UCI is not in a position to provide any further comments and insists on the importance for the UCI Ethics Commission to conduct its proceedings in an independent manner.
