Police searched the accommodation and team bus of the Bahrain Victorious team on the Tour de France amid doping suspicions since last year.

Police searched the accommodation and team bus of the Bahrain Victorious team on the Tour de France on Wednesday after the 17th stage, a police source told Reuters.

The search was performed amid doping suspicions since last year, the source added.

A member of another team staying at the same hotel, who declined to be named because they are not at liberty to discuss the matter, told Reuters that “dozens" of police officers in plain clothes performed the searches until 2 am local time.

Bahrain Victorious team boss Milan Erzen told Cyclingnews: “Nothing special, we have a visit from the police, they ask for riders training files, they check bus and that’s it."
