Cycling must take action over doping in the sport or risk losing future competitors, the head of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) said on Sunday.
"The image of your sport and right now your flagship event (the Tour de France) is in the toilet and you've got to do something about it or the risk is that your sport will be ignored by everybody, marginalized by others and it won't be sport any more," WADA chairman Dick Pound said on BBC Radio.
"Under these circumstances, if I had a child who showed some potential in this I'd say 'it appears that if you want to get to the top of this sport you've got to use all these drugs and why don't we find some other sport for you'," he added.
