The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) has dismissed the appeal made by the Russian cycling team “Gazprom-Rosvello” against the decision of the International Cycling Union (UCI) to suspend their participation in UCI-sanctioned competitions, as reported on the UCI website.
The appeal from the Russian team was submitted to the Court of Arbitration for Sport on March 22, 2023.
