Michael Rasmussen admits doping between 1998 and 2010

Michael Rasmussen, the Danish rider thrown off the Tour de France by his Rabobank team in 2007 when in the race leader's maillot jaune, has confessed to doping from 1998 to 2010. Anti Doping Danmark confirmed that he is fully co-operating with it, and that its Doping Commission will open a case against him. Given his "substantial assistance," a ban of two years rather than the eight he could have faced, is proposed, although Rasmussen has immediately announced his retirement from racing.
