PARIS (AP) - Cycling's governing body will work with the French anti-doping agency to test riders at this year's Tour de France.

The French agency has been involved in several rifts with the International Cycling Union, most recently when it refused to test riders at last month's Paris-Nice race.

In a statement Monday, UCI President Pat McQuaid says his organization is "determined to ensure that cycling is a clean sport." He adds that his group wants to make sure that "today's young riders in the peloton are not tarnished by issues that took place years in the past."

The UCI and the independent Cycling Anti-Doping Foundation will also work with the French agency to test riders at the Criterium du Dauphine in June.

The Tour de France is June 29 to July 21.
