- Doping then – now we'll never know….
The offences date back to the early/mid 90s I think millar was the only british rider to speak of at that time.
The reason the samples are to be destroyed is so t hey can never be linked to the tennis and footballers that we were told numerous times were in there, but everytime the good dr has offered to name names he’s been told to shut up – even during this trial – it was a farce from start to finish..Posted 4 years agobigdawgMember
the list wasn’t restricted to Spanish sportstars only – Hamilton in his book makes quite good mention of using Fuentes (or rather his assistant!)
The trouble is doping at the time of the raid wasn’t illegal in spain so Id imagine that use of the blood bags and computer records would constitute a breach of soneones rights – or that’s at least what Id expect a wealthy footballer’s lawyer to argue…
It was quite obvious during the trial that people were being leaned on to make sure the details were not released during the trial – how odd he’s been convicted of doping athletes he can’t tell you about..?!Posted 4 years agocrazy-legsSubscriber
Didn’t the judge in the case have some sort of links to one of Spain’s top football teams? On the board of directors or something?
Rumours being of course that the team was implicated in the doping ring.
But yeah, difficult to prosecute for because doping wasn’t illegal, he can only be done under “endangering public health”.
I wish Lance would tell all, that would be highly entertaining.Posted 4 years ago
