Czech cyclist Roman Kreuziger says independent experts have found that anomalies in his biological passport are not due to doping.

Kreuziger, who was dropped from the Tinkoff-Saxo team line-up for the Tour de France, says on his website that he had his biological passport checked upon being informed in June 2013 of abnormal results in 2011 and 2012.

Kreuziger says two accredited experts "unanimously concluded that the values were due to causes that were not due to the use of doping substances or methods."

He says the experts’ conclusions were passed to the UCI, cycling’s international federation.

Kreuziger says he informed Tinkoff-Saxo he did not take any forbidden substances or use any forbidden methods and that he will defend himself by legal means if necessary.
