Marion Sicot appeals to CAS over UCI’s lack of transparency in abuse cases



Marion Sicot has appealed to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) over the UCI’s lack of transparency in the two highly publicised harassment and abuse cases surrounding former Health Mate team manager Patrick Van Gansen and Doltcini-Van Eyck manager Marc Bracke. Sicot is asking, in the appeal filed on January 27, that the UCI better communicates its decisions to the victims involved in both cases, and in future, to make the victims party to the procedure after they have filed formal complaints with its Ethics Commission. 

“The UCI basically communicates with the victims through press releases. This is unacceptable and we were thus forced to file an appeal in front of the CAS on this issue,” wrote Sicot’s lawyer Dr. Madalina Diaconu after being contacted by Cyclingnews.
