Anyone who has violated cycling's anti-doping regulations will be banned from being employed in the sport.

The International Cycling Union's voted in the measure, which is aimed at cleaning up the sport and providing a healthy environment for professionals to operate in.

It will be introduced at the start of July, meaning that anyone found guilty of infringing anti-doping regulations after that date would be banned from working in the sport.
