Thermal cameras will be used at this year's Tour de France to prevent riders hiding motors in their bikes.

The first proven case of such practice, known as 'mechanical doping', saw Belgium's  van den Driessche banned for six years in April.

The cameras will be portable and can be operated from the back of a motorcycle or the edge of the road.

They will be used in addition to a magnetic resonance system that screens bikes at the start and finish lines.
