Pévenage is dropping dimes like rain.

Jan Ullrich’s former directeur sportif and mentor Rudy Pévenage has revealed that he organised trips for the German rider to visit Dr. Eufemiano Fuentes in Spain, confirming, for the first time, his involvement with the blood doping scheme unearthed in Operación Puerto.

“I organised Jan Ullrich’s trips to Madrid to see Dr. Fuentes. What’s the point in continuing to lie,” he told French newspaper L’Equipe in a long interview published on Thursday.

I’m waiting for the other shoe to drop.

Ullrich has always denied doping during his career. He won the Tour de France in 1997 but was always beaten after that, first by Marco Pantani in 1998 and then by Lance Armstrong. He retired in 2006 following the Operación Puerto scandal and has promised to one day reveal what he did during his career. He has so far kept silent. Id.

Seeing as Pévenage and Ullrich worked so well together, I can’t imagine this revelation wasn’t timed accordingly.

Thanks to Humpty for bringing that to my attention.

Those were the days. Then he went to law school. Go figure. Flagstaff, Arizona, USA
