Jan Ullrich, Winner Of '97 Tour De France, Admits To Use Of Performance Enhancers
Former Tour de France winner JAN ULLRICH "has confessed to doping," according to the BBC. The 39-year-old German, who won the Tour in '97, was banned for two years in February '12 by the Court of Arbitration for Sport for blood doping and "he has now admitted his guilt." Ullrich revealed that "he was treated by EUFEMIANO FUENTES, the doctor at the centre of a doping scandal in Spain." Ullrich: "I am no better than Armstrong, but no worse either. Almost everybody back then took performance-enhancing substances. I didn't take anything which the others were not taking" (BBC, 6/22).
