Cycling: Tour de France testing dispute ended

The French Anti-Doping Agency (AFLD) has agreed to carry out testing at this summer's Tour de France.

The AFLD said that cycling's governing body, the UCI, 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 starting on Sunday, citing a disagreement with the UCI.
