Ekimov: “There are refusals from the UCI to issue neutral status, but we are still in consultation on these cases”

President of the Russian Cycling Federation Vyacheslav Ekimov said that the International Cycling Union (UCI) has already received several refusals to issue neutral status for athletes, but so far consultations are ongoing on these cases.

The International Cycling Union (UCI) previously published the conditions for the participation of Russians in neutral status in competitions under its auspices.

– There is already a form for athletes to fill out. In general, there are no provocative calls for the refusal of anything. It is stated that athletes should not be involved in political actions and a number of other points. The application is personal, the athlete himself must fill out the form, send it himself. We are required to confirm licenses in the case of the World Cup.

There are already refusals, but this concerns athletes who have not even had time to apply for neutral status. We are currently consulting on this issue. In any case, permits will start from June 1,” Yekimov told .
