Anti-Doping, Alcohol and Drug Policies

Motorcycling Australia, in conjunction with Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority (ASADA), condemns the use of performance enhancing and recreational drugs and doping practices in sport.

ASADA is a government statutory authority that is Australia's driving force for pure performance in sport, whose mission is to protect Australia's sporting integrity through the elimination of doping, and is the organisation with prime responsibility for implementation of the World Anti-Doping Code (the Code) in Australia.

The use of performance enhancing and recreational drugs and doping practices is contrary to the ethics of sport and potentially harmful to the health of riders and poses increased safety risks.

The only legitimate use of drugs in sport is under the supervision of a physician for a clinically justified purpose in accordance with rule 11.8 of the anti-doping policy, contained within the Manual of Motorcycle Sport.

MA aims to stop doping practices in sport by:

  • imposing effective sanctions on persons who commit anti-doping violations;
  • educating and informing persons about drugs in sport issues;
  • and supporting the drug testing programs and education initiatives of the Australian Sports Drug Agency and other anti-doping organisations.
