Escarabajo said:It was Jacques Anquetil. But I don't think Coppi was on bread and water only either.
Coppi was asked did he take a pill known as "La Bomba" - which contained amphetamines, caffeine, opiates, ether, cocaine, chloroform and alcohol!

Anquetil also admitted using saying "everyone in cycling dopes himself, those who claim they don't are liar's".
