Doping is as doping does

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.”

The man, the legend. The guy who started it all back in the Year of Our Lord Beer, 2000, with a couple of pages worth of idiotic ranting hardcoded on some random porn site that would host anything you uploaded, a book called HTML for Dummies (which was completely appropriate), a bad attitude (which hasn’t much changed), and a Dell desktop running Win95 with 64 mgs of ram and a six gig hard drive. Those were the days. Then he went to law school. Go figure. Flagstaff, Arizona, USA

  1. Would you like some orange juice (no more dangerous than EPO) to go along with your ‘breakfast’?

  2. nice! if the book comes out in english and it reads like an instruction manual (like willy voet’s “breaking the chain”) then you can look for some good performances from ol’ tom in ’11!
