2009 Tour will be 'most tested event in history'

Tour de France 2009

During a press conference in Paris this morning, Union Cycliste internationale president Pat McQuaid made the claim that this year's Tour de France would be "the most tested sporting event in history".

Commenting on the level of anti-doping tests to be carried out at this year's Tour, McQuaid said: "There will be between three and four hundred tests carried out. Tour team's long lists have formed the basis of who we are testing out of competition, which has been taking place for a number of weeks and will carry on until the Tour."
