Sport Integrity Australia acknowledges the decision of Cycling Australia and Mountain Bike Australia to impose an additional four-year ban on athlete Ondrej Slezak for breaching his period of Ineligibility.

It was determined that Mr Slezak breached his initial period of Ineligibility (from 12 December 2017 to 11 December 2021) by competing in an event, namely the 2020 Snowies MTB Festival in Lake Crackenback NSW, administered by IN2Adventure on 14-16 February 2020.

Cycling Australia and Mountain Bike Australia imposed a new period of ineligibility of four years on Mr Slezak, commencing on 12 December 2021.

Mr Slezak is ineligible to return to competition until 12 December 2025 and is also not permitted to compete in a non-signatory professional league, or event organised by a non-signatory International or National level event organisation.
