The Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority (ASADA) has issued a call to anyone involved with doping activity in cycling to come forward and talk before someone else accuses them of doping.
The days of remaining silent are over. The days of fearing what happens if the truth gets out are over. The days of protecting people who are in the wrong are over.
ASADA Chief Executive Officer Aurora Andruska said people have already started to talk as a part of ASADA's investigation into cycling.
In a statement issued Friday Ms Andruska said support would be offered to people making a stand against doping in sport.
"But let me be clear; this is not an amnesty where full absolution is given," said Ms Andruska.
The investigation follows the fallout from the United States Anti-Doping Agency's investigation into Lance Armstrong and the US Postal Service pro cycling team.
That has already led to the resignation of former rider Matt White from his coaching role with Australia's pro team, Orica-GreenEDGE, due to his actions while a competitor.
"We know that it does not end here. But knowing and having the information to act on are two different things," Ms Andruska said.
"The days of remaining silent are over. The days of fearing what happens if the truth gets out are over. The days of protecting people who are in the wrong are over.
"We want to hear from you if you have experienced peer pressure to dope in your sport. We want to hear from you if you participated in organised doping to make the team or be the best. We want to hear from you if you have information about suspicious doping activity in your sport."
She said ASADA's investigation needed the cooperation of the sport and its athletes to get to the heart of the matter.
There is a confidential hotline on 13 000 ASADA (13 000 27232) or information can be be left on a form on the website www.asada.gov.au.
