June 06, 2012 (Toronto, ON) – At approximately 6am on the mornings of June 4th, 5th and 6th, a total of four Wheels of Bloor riders were paid surprise visits by testers from the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (C.C.E.S.). One rider was asked for blood and urine, while the others were asked only for a urine sample.
The whole process was quite involved, with multiple samples carefully taken, sealed and marked for the laboratory in Montreal. In all cases, the testing teams were highly professional, while managing to put a light side on what could have been an unpleasant process. As a bonus, the tested riders received a deck of cards extolling the virtues of clean sport.
Wheels of Bloor applauds the efforts of the CCES to keep our sport clean through vigilant testing and ongoing education.
