Tour de France : the real numbers of doping

Français


Last update : 30/07/2019

Warning

These statistics count riders who have been pinned at some point in their career. They therefore evolve according to positive controls, confessions, inquieries, etc. All of these numbers are likely to rise over time. In particular, the figures for the last ten years races should be regarded as highly provisional.

The table below establishes, team by team, the count of the riders who have been or will be subsequently "pinned" in doping cases.

Tempêtes sur le Tour

Dix ans après l'affaire Festina, Pierre Ballester, co-auteur de L.A. Confidentiel, publie Tempêtes sur le Tour. Dans ce livre, il dresse un état des lieux du cyclisme d'aujourd'hui et de son épreuve phare. Une partie importante du livre est consacrée au dopage et dissèque le tableau présenté ci-dessus. Les chiffres présentés dans le livre sont légèrement inférieurs à ceux publiés ici : les recherches se poursuivants, de nouveaux coureurs sont depuis tombés dans les mailles du filet de l'annuaire du dopage.

A l'occasion de la sortie de ce livre, Pierre Ballester a accordé une interview à cyclisme-dopage.com. Cliquez ici pour la lire.
