UCI, Ex-WADA Boss Reach Out-of-Court Peace Deal

A dispute about cycling's doping problems between the sport's governing body and former World Anti-Doping Agency president Dick Pound has been settled out of court.

A dispute about cycling's doping problems between the sport's governing body and former World Anti-Doping Agency president Dick Pound has been settled out of court.

The UCI said Thursday that its former president, Hein Verbruggen, and Pound have reached an agreement to keep the conflict out of a Swiss court.

As part of the settlement, Pound acknowledged that comments interpreted to mean that the UCI under Verbruggen was doing nothing to combat doping were excessive.

The UCI said Pound recognized that it did good work to eliminate cheats and had put new anti-doping tests in place.

The Dutch cycling chief and Canadian anti-doping campaigner are former colleagues on the International Olympic Committee.

Each side will pay its legal costs.
