Article from http://www.worldsbk.com/en/news/5-news/7241-anti-doping-the-fim-meets-the-superbike-riders.html

Following the anti-doping briefings for riders in Jerez, Spain, the FIM Medical Director, Dr David McManus and Evelyne Magnin, the FIM Anti-Doping Coordinator then met with the riders from the FIM Superbike/Supersport World Championships & the FIM Superstock 1000cc World Cup, in Assen, the Netherlands.

Dr McManus stated: "This is another important opportunity to meet with the riders at the highest level of our sport because we are aware that there is concern, anxiety and uncertainty about aspects of anti-doping. It is an opportunity for us to clarify a lot of the issues, provide explanations and reassurance about what is the FIM anti-doping programme".

Following a presentation, the riders actively participated in a very open, informative and useful discussion during which they asked many questions and requested clarification on a number of points.

Marco Melandri : "I am very happy with this first meeting on anti-doping as I think that there is not so much knowledge among riders and that we are not very competent in this field. Also I think that it is more important for us to know better the motorbike than to take prohibited substances to be faster. This meeting was a good start. It is very important to continue to fight together for a clean sport."

Carlos Checa: "I think that it is good information to be able to enter the world of anti-doping and to show that our sport is a clean sport. I sincerely believe that no substances can make you go faster but it is only the technical aspects such as your ability, your learning, the team, the motorbike which all together can make you go faster. I think that for the young riders who ignore the fact that substances can harm their health, this kind of information meeting is very interesting and useful."

Ruben Xaus: "There are many products on the market and we have no information. I think that this sport is a combination of men's work, engines, machines and we have not used any of the products to make us better because the technical aspects, the development of the motorbike are really what make the difference. It is important to know this as the young riders with internet access can be misinformed and could buy inappropriate products. The young riders can trust us, the old ones, who made it without anything. Eating well, keeping healthy and exercise are necessary to succeed in sports."
