Positive Test At Tour de France?

July 26, 2006 – The UCI received today a report of the anti-doping laboratory of Paris stating an adverse analytical finding following an anti-doping test carried out at the Tour de France 2006.

As foreseen by the World Anti-doping Code and the UCI Anti-doping Rules, the team of the rider, its national federation, its national anti-doping organisation and the World Anti-Doping Agency have been immediately informed.

The adverse analytical finding received this morning relates to the first analysis, and will have to be confirmed either by a counter analysis required by the rider, or by the fact that the rider renounces to that counter analysis.

The World Anti-doping Code and the Anti-doping Rules of the UCI do not allow to make the name of the concerned rider public, as well as other information that may allow its identification until the end of the results management provided by the Anti-doping Rules of the UCI as well as the World Anti-doping Code.
