Why I Took the Pledge

I firmly believe that cheating of any form in racing is something that should never be tolerated, whether it’s course cutting, littering or even more serious areas like taking substances that have been banned within the sport of athletics. It’s undoubtedly a complex subject with a lot of debate on details, but the key principle is that if a substance is banned in competitive racing at the international level then by starting any race there’s an implied agreement with those rules.
