Jalabert tests positive


Former professional cyclist Laurent Jalabert has tested positive for EPO from a sample given during the 1998 Tour de France.

The Frenchman, who was a member of the ONCE team at the time, withdrew from the event in the Alps without winning a single stage.

Originally a sprinter, Jalabert made a mid-career jump in level and took numerous stage races, including the 1995 Vuelta a España.

He is now a leading commentator for French national TV on the Tour de France, which gets underway on Saturday.
