Tour rider in positive cocaine test

Italian cyclist Luca Paolini has been expelled from the Tour de France after testing positive for cocaine.

The 38-year-old Katusha rider failed the test on Tuesday – after the

fourth stage

from Seraing to Cambrai – and has been provisionally suspended.

He can now request a B sample and his provisional suspension will last until the hearing of his case.

Paolini was 168th overall and his exit takes the number of riders on the Tour to 185.

He was taking part in his fifth Tour, primarily supporting sprinter Alexander Kristoff.
