Stefan Matschiner has revealed details of how he helped his athletes carry out blood doping and has promised further revelations about how he helped them cheat in a book he plans to call ‘Borderline’.
The Austrian was the agent for Bernhard Kohl, Michael Rasmussen and 20 other high-level triathletes and runners until 2008. He was given a 15-month sentence for doping on Monday and is no longer involved in sport. Kohl is serving a lifetime ban after having tested positive for CERA at the 2008 Tour de France.

“I don’t regret anything because I can’t say I put anyone’s health in danger,” Matschiner reportedly said during his trial, describing doping as important to elite sports “as breakfast.”
