Cycling Canada has banned Alexander Amiri from its activities and events after a no-abuse sport arbitration panel found the road cyclist violated the organization’s code of conduct.

Cycling Canada said in a statement Friday that Amiri, a 27-year-old from Victoria, is permanently ineligible to participate as a coach, athlete, volunteer or spectator.

The organization said the panel concluded Amiri breached various sections of Cycling Canada’s 2021 Code of Conduct and Ethics.

Cycling Canada became a signatory to the Abuse-Free Sport Program, an independent program aimed at preventing and combating abuse under the auspices of the Office of the Sport Integrity Commissioner, in December 2022.

Amiri represented British Columbia at the 2017 Canada Games.
