Résumé. At the end of the 17th stage of the Tour de France, on Wednesday July 15, the gendarmes of the Central Office for the fight against attacks on the environment and public health (Oclaesp) raided the Novotel hotel in Lescar ( Pyrénées-Atlantiques), where the Bahrain Victorious team spends the night. After particularly impressive performances on the Grande Boucle, the authorities suspect these riders of having used doping products.

Doubt also hangs over the Slovenian Tadej Pogacar, 22, who crushed this edition, marked by violent falls in the peloton and sometimes very difficult weather conditions.

This episode is told by Christophe Bérard, from the Parisian sports department.
