Biondi & DuPouey implicated in doping charges

Twenty-three people, including former AG2R assistant directeur sportif, Laurent Biondi, former world mountain bike champion Christophe Dupouey and former pro rider Laurent Roux have been named by the Bordeaux court in connection with an investigation into the trafficking of 'pot belge', an illegal doping cocktail of amphetamine, heroin and cocaine.

The principal suspect in the case is Belgian former soigneur Freddy Sergant who worked for the ADR team at the end of the 1980s. Sergant has been accused of "importation, possession and transfer of doping and narcotic substances," while Biondi has been charged with "transportation, possession, and acquisition of narcotic substances and also usage."
