UCI: We'll find source of 'suspicion index' leak

Cycling's governing body has pledged to find the source who leaked a confidential document to French daily L'Equipe that ranked cyclists at last year's Tour de France on a scale of doping suspicion.
UCI President Pat McQuaid has written to teams telling them he is angry at the publication of a list grading all 198 riders of the 2010 Tour on a rising scale from zero to 10.
McQuaid wrote an open letter Tuesday defending the use of the list in determining the priority for carrying out doping tests, saying the objective "has never been to create lists of suspects."
The ratings were based on readings from each rider's biological passport profile before the Tour, including the latest blood tests two days before the start of the 2010 race.
