I'm not even sure that's an accurate description. The only thing Rasmussen mentions about him is that he (Breukink) knew about his doping use, and that he told him in 2006 that he couldn't get a second transfusion, and in 2007 that they didn't want them to do transfusions at all. It sounds like he was aware of what was going on, but didn't have an active role in organising or planning the doping use. For sure he doesn't deserve a place in cycling anymore, but that's about it.sniper said:but i do feel for Erik
I'm willing to believe that, compared to the likes of Lefebvre and Riis (to name just two), Breukink has been a much more moderate enabler. Yet those two may continue as DS, while Breukink will have major problems finding a new job.
Comparatively, it sounds like De Rooy and especially Leinders had a much larger role. With those guys, especially Leinders, criminal investigations are needed (and coming in the case of Leinders).
