The UCI confirmed to Cyclingnews today that there were no adverse analytical findings from the doping controls performed at the 2011 Paris-Nice stage race.

The news refutes rumours of a positive in this year's event.

Testing at Paris-Nice was performed by the French anti-doping agency (AFLD) in conjunction with the UCI, reversing a once contentious relationship between the two organisations.

The race was won by HTC-Highroad's Tony Martin.
