Controls Questioned

MILAN () -- The Italian Cycling Federation, or FCI, has said it had opened an inquiry into doping controls at last weekend's Milan-San Remo classic after equipment was tampered with.


The doping controls at the race were cancelled after officials discovered that the package containing the equipment had already been opened, according to Tuesday's statement. None of the riders was asked for a urine sample.


The first, second and fifth-placed riders would have been due to be tested with four others taken at random.


Gabriele Colombo of Italy won, ahead of Alexandre Gontchenkov of Ukraine. Italian Stefano Zani, a teammate of Colombo, finished fifth.
