Well I never. Fancy the Ukranians pulling their team out of the Tour de l’Avenir after 3 ‘individual’ offences and a team ‘therapist’ allegedly ‘practising medicine’.
The Ukrainian team did not start the race’s eighth stage on Saturday, and were subjected to an anti-doping control after the two men were detained by customs officials on Friday in Saint-Sauveur, and were found in possession of suspect products and syringes.
No names or specific drugs mentioned.
