Oh no, i really like Preidler. Elite sport is rotten. Its really not like Preidler did something extraordinary, especially considering he definitely showed promise for more as a junior...

Yeah, if riders like him are blood doping, why should we believe the big guys are clean?
 
Of course he claims to never have actually doped but let's be real, he did that to not lose his results and no way he would have come out like this if he had never actually done anything wrong.
On another note, Austrian cycling is f*cked

Very curious if there are any bora links as so many Austrians ride for them.

So does this add another win to Alberto's palmares?
So one convicted doper gets stripped of his win in favor of another convicted doper.

Priceless ... only possible in cycling :cool:
 
Preidler is saying that it was an attempt to transfuse blood. That he never actually did it. I am not sure what is the difference in the eyes of the UCI. Maybe a lessen ban. But I don't believe that for a second.

Maybe is time to open a new thread about the Doctor ring! (like we did with Fuentes).

Remember when Ekimov was complaining that he was being robbed when Hamilton was caught for doping?
That was the worst!
Remember when Ullrich's last results were voided, awarding wins to Julich and Koldo Gil

in the interview Preidler mentions that it means the end of his career anyway, no matter the length of the ban (which is likely to be still 4 years by the way. There's the same penalty for "use" and "attempted use", afaik. And he clearly confessed the attempt.)

So if he indeed didn't tell the whole truth, it probably was not to get a shorter ban

Oh, not at all just cycling; Ben Johnson's gold medal went to . . . Carl Lewis (that race was one of the clearest cases of the entire field being doped).
 
Jörg Werner, manager of Kittel, Degenkolb and Martin, admitts that he has been a regular attendant at Schmidt's practise in Erfurt. However, he insists that it was only for his own regular personal treatment.
 
Comment by Marcel Kittel on the case:
https://www.marcelkittel.de/en/
Gist of it: Shocked by the revelations that Schmidt still was part of doping programm in cycling and that he apparently purchased doping equipment from Stefan Matschiner who had just been busted before. Also shocked that his home town Erfurt is in the centre of investigations. Mentions his UV-treatment and how young athletes should be extremely careful as to who they trust.

Personal reasons? He's 28, so if he gets a four-year ban he'd ben 32 by the time the ban is over. Certainly wouldn't be the first to return from a ban at that age.

I guess it's not everyones cup of tea to come back and face all those people you betrayed. And then there also is the press. Hope he stays away for ever.
