Le tour de France 1998 et la régulation du dopage sportif : reconfiguration des rapports de force

Abstract : This article suggests that the organization of controls for performance-enhancing drugs should be studied as the result of historical interactions involving sportsmen and women, representatives of public authority and doctors. From this perspective, the main story behind the 1998 Tour de France concerns a reconfiguring of the system for controlling the use of such drugs. In fact, the doctors who now dominate professional practice and the cognitive frameworks governing the treatment of this question have taken over from the representatives of sporting organisations who previously held power in this issue area. Indeed, the legislative process which subsequently took place in 1999 around the issue of protecting the health of athletes and the ban on use of drugs in sport illustrates the emergence of this new configuration. It even marks the beginning of a new era of regulation strongly influenced by a health and medical approach to drugs in sport.
