This is kind of hilarious:
"AFLD announced Monday that it was going to use a new test during the Tour that will be able to detect a hitherto undetectable substance. AFLD president Pierre Bordry did not wish to give the name of this product and furthermore declared that the test was not yet completely ready. He nonetheless specified that, like last year, the UCI has authorized the AFLD to conserve the blood samples taken from riders for future tests."
Wow, this is cold war language!
