French gendarmes watch their collegues examine the Quick Step cycling team bus, unseen, in the court yard of a regional headquarter of the French Gendarmerie in la Roche sur Yon, western France, Friday July 1, 2011. Police seized the Quick Step cycling team's bus for checks on the eve of the Tour de France. A police officer told The Associated Press the operation was coordinated by local authorities. "We are supervising the operation, we are checking things," said the official, who requested anonymity because he was not allowed to speak publicly to the press. He refused to say whether they were looking for banned substances. (AP Photo/Peter Dejong) less
