Overheard- Jörg Jaksche

Jörg Jaksche in an interview with A German news outlet. He was suspended for 1 year.

I have ridden in teams in which doping was systematically organized.

There are still lots of possibilities to cheat, without anybody proving it. Transfusion with your own blood, growth hormones, artificial haemoglobin. Right now you have to say: Only the dumb ones get caught. Or the poor ones, who can't afford the expensive doping.

So, what teams has he ridden for:

Polti 1997-1998
Telekom 1998 - 2000
ONCE 2001 -2003
CSC 2004
Liberty Seguros/Astana 2005 - 2006
Tinkoff 2007

Not very "clean" company

"Systemically organized." So what else does he know? Other than Telekom, which we know about, although they all deny there was an organized effort, where else?

His last statement is probably the most telling and sad: only the dumb or poor riders get caught.
