POLITIKEN "Secret Report"

3 Feb 2020

Once again I unfortunately find myself compelled to deny the latest media hoax that concerns me.

The following is my reply to the "Secret Report" mentioned by the newspaper POLITIKEN:

 

- I have not had any relationship with athletes from Team Astana for over 10 years

- I haven't been to Monaco/Nice for at least 12 years

- I have never been on a scooter/motorbike in my entire life, let alone motorpacing a cyclist

- I haven't been to the Vuelta Catalunya in 2019. I haven't physically been present at a single race since 1994

- The "Report" is based on false reports from probable interested parties

- I have no base in Lugano, a place where I have never been

- I have never been convicted of doping.
