Tour tests claim; SPORT SHORTS: CYCLING.

ASTANA enjoyed preferential treatment from drug testers during the Tour de France, according to a report published by the French anti-doping agency.

The AFLD has issued a 10-page document detailing how they feel Albert Contador, the Tour winner, and his team-mates - who at the time included Lance Armstrong - were treated favourably by the International Cyclist Union (UCI) testers.

Among the accusations is the claim that AFLD doctors noted on July 11 that UCI inspectors intervened to allow Astana riders an extra 45 minutes before testing rather than presenting themselves immediately as they should have done.
