French anti-doping keen to ease tensions with UCI

French anti-doping keen to ease tensions with UCI

The French Anti-Doping Agency has taken a step toward reconciliation with the International Cycling Union by pledging to work more closely in the fight against doping.
The AFLD and the UCI have been at loggerheads in recent years. The AFLD's former president, Pierre Bordry, was critical of the UCI's anti-doping program, and the UCI cut the AFLD out of this year's testing at the Tour de France.
The AFLD was allowed to do supplementary tests on this year's Tour only after the World Anti-Doping Agency intervened.
The AFLD says on Tuesday it "is disposed to join its efforts with those deployed by the International Cycling Union" for French races such as the Tour, Paris-Nice and the Dauphine Libere.
