FDJ coach Julien Pinot has hit out at cycling authorities and the media over treatment of cyclists over anti-doping, after his team were forced to go through late night doping controls at 11pm on Wednesday.

He contrasted the situation to that of tennis player Richard Gasquet, who made it through the quarter-finals of Wimbledon having had corticoid injections, with very little questioning from the media according to Pinot.
