Tour riders are cleared to race
cycling
All the riders for this year's Tour de France have been declared fit to compete following pre-race blood tests.

All 189 riders for cycling's blue-riband event, which starts on Saturday and finishes on 24 July, had tests over a two-hour period.

And organisers have confirmed that there was no evidence of doping in any of the results.

Last year, Spain's Gorka Gonzalez was banned from competing in the race after failing the test.
