Cycling Australia says Matt White can remain the men’s road coordinator for the country’s national team.
White was fired by Garmin-Cervelo earlier this year for allegedly violating team policy sending rider Trent Lowe to a doctor who was not a part of the team’s anti-doping program. Prior to that, he had accepted the part-time position with the national team, which did not conflict with his professional team responsibilities.
Cycling Australia’s board last week asked CEO Graham Fredericks to investigate White’s firing. The group announced Wednesday that it had “reconfirmed” White’s appointment.
“The board is satisfied that Mr. White’s breach of Garmin-Cervelo Cycling Team policy was an error of judgement that he sincerely regrets but that it was nothing more than that ,” said Mr. Fredericks in a CA statement. “Matt has learned a lesson, the hard way, from this and we are confident he is fully aware of and committed to the policies that must be adhered to when working with the national program. ”
