quite possibly he didn't dope seriously until the nandrolon thing and was an "accident"(nandrolon is bull**** product anyway) that made him too afraid to really dope afterwards and or work with ferrari. what I remember of joachim is his hatred for bruyneel and him saying one time: "bruyneels greatest assett is that he's a great liar." he was 100% spot on, on that one.
also he's full of **** when he says he was as good as hamilton when he started. one look at results prooves otherwise. unless I forgot a 12th place in the tour by joachim.
still in early usps tour years only the climbers got dope. so joachim might be right there as I think he only did the tour in the earlier years few times.
