Cristian Moreni of the Cofidis squad has tested positive for exogenous testosterone, according to l'Equipe.

Moreni apparently tested positive in a random test after Stage 11, where he finished 102nd. Adding a cruel twist to the story, Moreni and his Cofidis teammates were among those who delayed the start of the stage to call attention to their “Movement for a Credible Cycling.”

Cofidis will exit the Tour - here's the story in l'Equipe.

He has been arrested by French police, while the hotel of the Cofidis team in Lescar has been searched.

Notes that Cofidis chose not to ask for a B-sample test (I thought that was the rider's call), and claims Cofidis was “invited to withdraw” as was Astana yesterday.
