Kreuziger hoping CAS hearing to take place in April
March 11, 2015 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com
Roman Kreuziger (Tinkoff-Saxo) is hoping to make his appearance in front of the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) before the end of next month. Kreuzigers legal team have proposed a number of dates to the CAS but he hopes that a date will be set for April, which means that he would still potentially be able to ride the Giro dItalia in May if he is found innocent of doping. The UCI lodged the appeal with the CAS, in October last year, after Kreuziger was found not guilty of doping following anomalous values in his passport. However, Kreuziger says previous dates were thrown out and he is still none the wiser as to when he will have to appear at the Lausanne-based court. I am still waiting for a date to be set for my hearing before the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS). The date initially proposed was in mid-April, and I confirmed acceptance. However, the UCI and WADA rejected this date (their lawyers didnt have time), Kreuziger wrote on the Kreuzigercase.cz website that was set up in the wake of the appeal.ADVERTISEMENT Further proposed dates from the CAS are at the end of April, or on 7.5 (May 7). I hope that the April date will suit everyone. I would like to believe that no one has an interest in the hearing clashing with the compulsory tests before the Giro dItalia, which take place on 7th May. The Kreuziger case began back in May of 2014, when he was notified of the anomalies by the UCI and asked to provide an explanation. He was later pulled from the Tour de France team before the UCI provisionally suspended him when his team tried to return him to racing at the Tour de Pologne. The Czech Olympic committee cleared him of any doping violations and he was able to compete in a handful of races at the end of the season. Kreuziger has been reluctant to name any of his seasons goals in public with a potential ban looming over his head. He is currently riding Tirreno-Adriatico and made his season debut at the Tour of Oman where he told Cyclingnews that he was trying to put the case behind him. Everything about this case I put away and I am just looking just towards the season and we will see when the hearing is, Kreuziger said to Cyclingnews.

Kreuziger looks to focus on racing as he awaits CAS appeal
February 22, 2015 (14:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com
Almost eight months have passed since Roman Kreuziger was pulled from Tinkoff-Saxos race programme when the UCI notified him that he was under investigation for anomalies in his biological passport. While hes been able to race since September, when he was cleared by his native Czech Olympic Committee (CAC), he must compete with the uncertainty of an appeal hanging over his head. A date had been set for the appeal hearing but according to Kreuziger it was rejected by the UCI and hes still waiting to learn of a new date. It could be in one month, three months or at the end of the year. I dont know, he shrugged. Tinkoff-Saxo tried to bring Kreuziger back to racing at the Tour de Pologne but the UCI stepped in and his first racing appearance didnt take place until Milano-Torino last October. He rode three further races before his season ended. Kreuziger has a programme pencilled in that includes Strade Bianche and Tirreno-Adriatico but hes reluctant to talk about anything else when he doesnt even know if he will make the start line. Despite the uncertainty, Kreuziger is trying to carry on about business as usual. I am still young but I am not a first year pro, I know how to get ready and into shape. Everything about this case I put away and I am just looking just towards the season and we will see when the hearing is, Kreuziger told Cyclingnews. Cycling is my job and you cant look too much at this case. You have to live with it and look ahead. Kreuziger is currently competing in his first race of the year at the Tour of Oman where he finished 11th on Green Mountain to move himself into 12th overall, 1:45 behind Rafael Valls (Lampre-Merida). It is a solid start to the year and, considering the circumstances, Kreuziger is happy with the way his 2015 season has begun. It is the new season and a new start and I think I had a good winter so everything is going how it should be, he said. It was a long stage and I had the legs. Of course I wasnt able to fight with the first but we have Rafal (Majka) here for the GC and I will just support him. I think for the next races that are coming I think that it is perfect where I am now and I am really happy with the shape. If he is able to race a full programme this season, Kreuziger hopes to resume his role as a super-domestique for both Alberto Contador and Majka. Kreuziger has been a key rider for Contador since the pair teamed up at Tinkoff-Saxo and he was set to be part of last years Tour de France squad until the passport proceedings came to light. Contador will target the Giro-Tour double this season, a feat that only seven riders have achieved " Marco Pantani was the last in 1998 " but Kreuziger is confident that his team leader can become the eighth. Not many have done it but you have to look at Alberto, hes a champion and not many are like him, said Kreuziger. Of course I would like to be there and be part of the team because Im pretty sure that if someone can do the double then its Alberto because Ive seen many champions in the last 10 years and hes the one who can keep the focus and he has really good recovery. I think that if someone can do it in the peloton then it is him. ADVERTISEMENT

Gallery: Tinkoff-Saxo train in Sicily

Gallery: Tinkoff-Saxo train in SicilySagan, Contador and Majka begin two-week stay near EtnaBy Stephen Farrand. January 11, 11:45The Tinkoff-Saxo team have begun a two-week training camp in Sicily, with Alberto Contador, Peter Sagan and 21 other riders working hard for the season ahead on the slopes on Mount Etna.
The riders and staff arrived in Sicily on Friday and did their first ride on Saturday, giving their new bikes a shakedown and enjoying the quiet but hilly roads on the slopes of the Italian volcano. Only Michael Rogers, Christopher Juul-Jensen, Manuele Boaro, Jesper Hansen, Michael Kolar, Pavel Brutt and Evgeny Petrov were missing from the camp because they will ride the Tour Down Under in Australia. Despite being locked in a legal battle with the UCI regarding an alleged Biological Passport violation, Roman Kreuziger is at the camp and training hard with his teammates.
The training rides are planned and monitored by new head coach Bobby Julich and new directeur sportif Sean Yates. The riders face daily sessions in the gym before breakfast to work on their core body strength. The training rides are followed by massage and recovery.
“A camp like this allows us to fully concentrate on training – both as individual riders and as a team,” Julich explained in a statement on the team's website.
“The trip to Kilimanjaro was about getting together and building a strong team spirit, while the first camp at Anfi on Gran Canaria was used to lay the foundation after the off-season. But this camp on Sicily will be much more specific, getting the riders up to race speed, simulating race situations and pushing the general condition further. Already now, when I look at the team, I see a unified group with a very solid team spirit. So during the more intensive rides, we’ll have the opportunity to make sure that everybody knows how they can help each other even when they’re put under pressure.”
“We’ll of course make a smooth transition to avoid overtraining or sickness. But for sure, we’ll kick up the tempo in the second part of the camp. The season is upon us, and we’re all very excited and ready for the big battles.”
Alberto Contador will target both the Giro d'Italia and the Tour de France in 2015 and make his season debut at the Ruta del Sol (18-22 February). Peter Sagan is expected to make his race debut in the bright yellow and blue Tinkoff-Saxo colours at the Tour of Qatar (February 8-13).

Under suspicion for doping, Roman Kreuziger has been denied his request to start the three-week Spanish Vuelta on Saturday. The Court of Arbitration for Sport said it dismissed an urgent appeal by the Czech Republic rider, who remains provisionally suspended by the International Cycling Union while he is under investigation for possible doping in 2012. The UCI believes long-term analysis of Kreuziger's blood values shows he was doping in 2012. The UCI added that ''this is only a provisional suspension and that the hearing to decide on whether or not the rider has committed a doping offence will follow.'' Now riding for Tinkoff-Saxo, Kreuziger was dropped from its Tour de France squad in June because of the ongoing case. More...
