Reuters | Tour Rider Fails Dope Test for EPO

The rider's name hasn't been released, pending a second test.

[S]ources close to the Tour organization said it was not a "major" rider and that his team had been advised of the result Thursday.

Urine tests to detect EPO have been organized on the Tour since 2001 and only one rider, Spaniard Txema Del Olmo, has been found positive, in 2001.

Between 80 and 90 riders had been tested for EPO on this Tour, organizers said.
