The Cofidis cycling team suspended riders Philippe Gaumont and Frank Vandenbroucke late on Monday night after they became involved in police investigations into the use of illegal drugs. The team said that Gaumont, a Frenchman, and Vandenbroucke, a Belgian, would not be allowed to compete until all the facts were known about the latest doping scandal to hit French cycling.

The Midi Libre race will take place next week despite several withdrawals and a widescale probe into doping in French sport, organisers said yesterday.
