Jean Pitallier, president of the French Cycling Federation:

"The noose is tightening on those who are causing enormous damage to our sport. We have to show ourselves to be merciless towards them," he said.

"We have to continue to clean up our act and rid cycling of certain individuals who have nothing to do in the sport. I also hope that the justice system imposes sanctions which serve as an example because they remain the best deterrent."
