Résumé
Several substantial changes have occurred within elite cycling over the past two decades. Importantly, the widespread culture of tolerance towards doping has been broken. As a result, the elite cycling community no longer supports the formerly accepted doping practices. Even more and not unsurprisingly if looking back at cycling’s recent history, elite teams are now expected to take an active part in the doping prevention, not least because individual doping cases may affect the whole business model of cycling teams. After briefly tracing back this shift, this chapter focuses on two predictors of doping use that emerged out from our data, i.e. job insecurity and poor supervision. These findings then serve as a starting point to develop four ideal types of dopers. Finally, we conclude by elaborating on policy implications for doping prevention. Elite cycling is here used as a case-study since we conducted, and we still conduct, research projects in Belgian, French and international elite cycling.
