New drugs and hardcore medicines used by ridersAccording to the French Anti-Doping Agency, two new and undetectable doping products were used at the 2009 Tour de France.

Pierre Bordry, head of the AFLD, told Le Monde that “two new products were used during [this year's] Tour de France: two medicines that are not yet on the market.”

Bordry said he believes illegal blood transfusions were still in use during the Tour and he claimed that his agency had found evidence of “hardcore medicines” in rubbish bins during the Tour.
