I’d say I was surprised… but I’d be lying to you if I did.
Rudy Pevenage has indicated that Jan Ullrich may have been using doping products when he won the Tour de France in 1997. Focus magazine reported Monday that in a secretly-taped conversation between ex-Team Telekom soigneur Jef d’Hont and Ullrich mentor Pevenage, the former noted Ullrich came to the team as a good rider and did what the others did.
“Yes, and he won the Tour with it too, didn’t he?” said Pevenage, which the magazine interpreted as meaning that Ullrich used EPO (Erythropoietin) to help him win the Tour. Source: cyclingnews.com
I can’t wait for the bombs to start dropping. When is Ullrich’s tell all book going to hit the shelves? Gotta be soon, right? Strike while the iron is hot?by
