The Tinkoff-Saxo cycling team say they fully support member Roman Kreuziger, who could face Union Cycliste Internationale disciplinary proceedings over abnormalities in his biological passport. Tinkoff-Saxo general manger Stefano Feltrin expressed surprise over how long the matter, which dates back to 2011 and 2012, had been dragging on. The team previously said they would not enter Kreuziger in any events, including the imminent Tour de France, until the issue is resolved. The Czech denies taking banned substances.
