WADA supports stronger doping controls in 2006 Tour

Although it may be at odds with football, the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) welcomed the call of the Tour de France organizers for stronger anti-doping efforts during the 2006 Tour.

"We are encouraged by efforts of the Tour de France organizers to establish an enhanced testing program for cycling's marquee event," said WADA Chairman Dick Pound. "We welcome this opportunity to work with the Tour and UCI to strengthen the testing program to ensure that cheaters are caught and the integrity of both the Tour de France and the sport of cycling is protected."
