The International Cycling Union has learned of the declarations made by Mr Floyd Landis and published in the Wall Street Journal.
The UCI regrets that Mr Landis has publicly accused individuals without allowing sufficient time for the relevant US authorities to investigate.
An impartial investigation is a fundamental right, as Mr Landis will understand having contested, for two years, the evidence of his breach of the Anti-Doping Rules in 2006.
The UCI will leave it to the individuals accused by Mr Landis to take the position they see fit with regards to this issue.
