Doping admission costs White Cycling Australia job

Cycling Australia has criticized the international federation for taking too long to stamp out performance-enhancing substances in the sport and fired Matt White as coach after he admitted to doping during his time riding with Lance Armstrong and the U.S. Postal team.
White quit as Orica-GreenEDGE sports director and CA road coordinator after the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency released a damning report against Armstrong which contained evidence from 26 witnesses and implicated other riders.
Cycling Australia on Wednesday said White's role became untenable because his "admissions ... clearly place him in breach of the CA Anti-Doping Policy and Code of Conduct."
It also said that until recently, the UCI hadn't done enough to combat doping. The CA board did not support any amnesty against cycling drug cheats and supported moves to criminalize doping.
