Cycling body to share drug info with British

Updated: October 31, 2011, 11:30


LONDON (AP) Cycling's governing body and Britain's anti-doping agency have agreed to share information on "biological passport'' records leading to next year's London Olympics.

UK Anti-Doping and the UCI announced an agreement Monday that will allow both groups to better target suspicious athletes. The biological passport program involves monitoring an athlete's blood profile over time for evidence of doping.

UCI President Pat McQuaid says the agreement "marks another important advancement for the fight against doping.'' UK Anti-Doping chief executive Andy Parkinson calls the deal is significant in the countdown to next year's Olympics.
