Two in custody in Tour de France doping probe

Searches led to “the discovery of many health products, including drugs, in their personal belongings and above all a method that can be qualified as doping,” it said.

Arkea-Samsic’s team manager, Emmanuel Hubert, confirmed the team’s hotel had been raided last week. He said the search targeted a “very limited” number of riders as well as their entourage, who he said were not employed by the team.

Hubert said the investigation did “not target the team or its staff directly”.

“We obviously support our riders, but if the investigation confirms the veracity of doping practices, the team would immediately dissociate itself from such acts,” Hubert added in his statement.

The Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) said that it “welcomes and supports the action of all authorities involved in this operation”.

The UCI said it will take “necessary measures” once it has reviewed the elements obtained by the French judicial authorities.
