PRAGUE (AP) - Cycling’s governing body is joining forces with the World Anti-Doping Agency in an appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport after Czech rider Roman Kreuziger was cleared of doping violations by his national Olympic committee.

The UCI and WADA say they are appealing with a request “that consideration be given to a sanction for Kreuziger.”

The Czech Olympic Committee ruled last month that anomalies in Kreuziger’s biological passport dating to 2011-12 did not break any limits.

Kreuziger was dropped by his Tinkoff-Saxo team ahead of the Tour de France because of the ongoing case, and then provisionally suspended by UCI in August after the team decided to reinstate him for the Tour of Poland.

The UCI and WADA say they will not comment further until CAS’ ruling.
