Cycling: Cycling and doping bodies announce Tour deal

The International Cycling Union (UCI) said on Monday that it has agreed to cooperate fully with the French anti-doping body at this year's Tour de France. The two bodies had been at loggerheads since March's Paris-Nice race but have now found common ground ahead of the sport's glamour event. "The UCI and the independent Cycling Anti-Doping Foundation (CADF) have announced a continuation of their partnership with the French Anti-Doping Agency (AFLD) to conduct anti-doping tests at the major races held in France in 2013," said the UCI statement.

Cycling-French doping agency will do Tour de France testing

PARIS, Feb 28 (Reuters) - The French Anti-Doping Agency (AFLD) has agreed to carry out testing at the Tour de France in June. The AFLD said in a statement on Thursday the UCI (International Cycling Union) had guaranteed "information on the whereabouts of the riders and their biological profile data in order to carry out random tests". Two weeks ago the AFLD said it would not carry out tests on the Paris-Nice race that starts on Sunday, citing a disagreement with the UCI.
