Following on from the successful anti-doping seminars held at the 2018 Australian Supercross Championship, the Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority (ASADA) held three anti-doping seminars in conjunction with Motorcycling Australia (MA), supported by Williams Event Management (WEM), at Round 3 of the 2019 Pirelli MX Nationals.
Across the three seminars, ASADA were greeted by a total of 123 attendees, which included the likes of Todd Waters, Luke Clout and Brett Metcalfe. With recent changes to MA‰Ûªs Anti-Doping Policy and ongoing changes to Anti-Doping Regulations, these seminars are increasingly important to all competitors, teams and MA members in understanding how an anti-doping violation might affect them.
Held at Broadford State Motorcycle Complex on Friday 12th April, ASADA‰Ûªs three seminars focussed on:
Discussion of real-life scenarios
The powers of ASADA in regulating drug use in sport
Recent changes to MA‰Ûªs anti-doping policy
The effects of doping (physical/mental)
An athlete‰Ûªs status in sport while suspended (all sports)
The life changing experience of an anti-doping violation
Tools and information to help members
