    The Eurosport audio feed says that Riis just admitted using EPO! (Of course, I'm sure it was for 3 days. )

    Good for him! I'm sure he spoke with CSC before coming clean and the sponsors will move forward with the thought of a new generation of cleaner riders. If anyone really wants to believe that! Sport is sport and money talks. Hope all this stops short of Lance, 'cause the cancer community doesn't need that!

    ^^ I agree. No idea if Lance doped or not but the power his name holds in getting funding for cancer research is, at this point, too important.

    Riis also announced yesterday that CSC was going to continue sponsoring the team so my guess is he told them first (about his doping) and they were fine with him coming clean.

    as published here:

    Will Walter Godefroot be the next to tell all he knows? The former Telekom team manager and current Team Astana advisor has indicated that he might do just that.

    "The day will come, when I officially testify. And also about the Freiburg doctors," the Belgian told the German magazine Die Welt. He also indicated that he was aware of doping within his former team. "I am not deaf. Anyone who listened around could hear that it was spoken of openly in the peloton."

    He said he used it from '93 to '98 and that he purchased and injected it himself.

    So wtf will Proudhomme do now?

    We have Landis, still on his arbitration hearing, but he's already considered not the TdF champ.

    In the other hand we have a champ that confessed doping.

    RIIS: "I MADE MISTAKES"

    http://www.cyclingweekly.co.uk/news/...le_121508.html

    Friday 25th May 2007 - Cycling Weekly
    breaking news

    Team CSC Press Release, issued today at 4.19pm.

    Concerning the current debate in Germany, Bjarne Riis would like to give the following statement:

    After the long run of confessions concerning the Telekom team in the 1990s, I have decided to give a statement about my involvement.

    I have decided this for two reasons.

    First of all, I'm doing this to keep the focus on the work we are doing today that keeps cycling in the right perspective. The massive steps we have taken to fight doping and the ways in which we have secured that the team rests on the right and proper foundations.

    I think if we are to talk about doping, we should talk about what to do now and not about the mistakes in the past. The recent developments in Germany have taken the balance out of this and therefore I want to set the record straight. And I want to do this, because the future of cycling needs the right focus.

    Second of all, I'm doing this to get rid of the endless discussions about things that are truly in the past and that I personally have put behind a long time ago. I don't want my personal past to overshadow that work and brilliant effort that Team CSC is doing today. We are the number one team in the world for the second year running and I want my riders and sponsors to be proud of that. They work, within the rules, with passion, professionalism and commitment and I want them to keep on doing that. When I was a rider in the 1990s, I worked extremely hard to get my results. I worked extremely hard, day in day out and I sacrificed a lot just even to be part of the best. In that time, the perspective on doping and preparation was wrong and misguided.

    That also means that I did things that I shouldn't have and I have regretted that ever since. Those were mistakes that I take the full responsibility for and I don't have anyone to blame but myself. We all make mistakes and I think my biggest mistake was to let my ambition get the better of me. That I have had to deal with a long time ago and I am glad to say that I am a lot wiser now. Both in my personal and in my professional life.

    I don't want the mistakes of my personal past to stand in the way of the work we are doing today. I did what it took to compete at the highest level back then, and it's a deep satisfaction for me that those days are long gone and the sport has moved in the right direction. If that wasn't the case, I wouldn't be here today.

    I have learned from my past – for better and for worse. The experience and wisdom I have gained informed my decision to come back to cycling and has energized me to create the best team in the world.

    If your relationship still works, you could be training harder.

    "Asked if he was a worthy Tour de France winner, Riis replied: "No, I am not.""

    Then you should've brought the bowl with you to the Press Conf, and hand it over

    From the story on msnbc.com:

    “My jersey is at home in a cardboard box,” said Riis, now manager of the CSC team. “They are welcome to come and get it. I have my memories for myself.”

    From Cyclingnews: "My yellow jersey is in box at home, you can come and collect it," said Riis of his 1996 Tour performance.

    Edit: Shoot, CyLowe beat me to it!

    Even if he gave back his Tour win, who'd get it? Ullrich? Virenque? Dufaux? Give me a break. he won on talent. The playing field was leveled with evceryone boosting their blood. No biggie, let's move on.

    Posted this in another thread...so if Riis gives back the jersey what "clean" rider are they going to give the jersey to?

    Criteria: must have ridden for team who did not have a positive drug test, was not involved with one of the "infamous" Italian doctors, was not on a team run by a DS who was caught up in drug scandal, or teammate who was either found positive or confessed. To help things along, I've bolded the ones I know about, others can comment as they see fit:

    1996 TDF Final GC:

    1. Bjarne Riis (Den) Telekom 95.57.16
    3. Richard Virenque (Fra) Festina 4:37
    4. Laurent Dufaux (Swi) Festina 5:53
    5. Peter Luttenberger (Aut) Carrera 7:07
    6. Luc Leblanc (Fra) Polti 10:03
    7. Piotr Ugrumov (Rus) Roslotto 10:04
    8. Fernando Escartin (Spa) Kelme 10:26
    9. Abraham Olano (Spa) Mapei 11:00
    10. Tony Rominger (Swi) Mapei 11:53

    11. Miguel Indurain (Spa) Banesto 14:14
    12. Patrick Jonker (Aus) ONCE 18:58
    13. Bo Hamburger (Den) TVM 22:19
    14. Udo Bolts (Ger) Telekom 25:56

    15. Alberto Elli (Ita) MG-Technogym 26:18
    16. Manuel Fernandez Gines (Spa) Mapei 26:28
    17. Leonardo Piepoli (Ita) Refin 27:36
    18. Laurent Brochard (Fra) Festina 32:11
    19. Michele Bartoli (Ita) MG-Technogym 37:18
    20. Yevgeny Berzin (Rus) Gewiss 38:00
