The International Cycling Union (UCI) declared that it would not initiate an investigation against Kazakhstan's professional cyclist Alexander Vinokourov, Sport Express reports.

"We asked the Swiss magazine to provide evidence confirming their accusations. But the journalists refused referring to confidentiality of their sources. We cannot initiate an investigation without any evidences," the official UCI statement said.

On December 7 Swiss l’Illustré published a story saying that Vinokourov bought his victory in Liege-Bastogne-Liege 2010 for 100 thousand euro ($ 133,000) from Kolobnev. The magazine said that the accusations were based on a conversation between the racers during a breakaway at the race and their emails obtained through hacking of Vinokourov’s mail box that mentioned a transfer of 100 thousand euro to Kolobnev's account. The racer immediately refuted the accusations saying that he wasn’t involved and would sue l’Illustré for false accusations.
