MARSEILLE, France - Judicial officials say Tour de France rider Remy Di Gregorio has been arrested at his team hotel in connection with a doping investigation.

The sources requested anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly due to an ongoing investigation.

Di Gregorio's Cofidis team was staying in Bourg-en-Bresse on Tuesday during the Tour's first rest day.

Sources say two other people were arrested in Marseille in connection with the investigation.

The investigation began last June and is led by France's police agency responsible for anti-doping investigations, OCLAESP, and the Marseille police.
