Some food for thought...

Sky...
Yates... obv.
Servais Knaven: TVM & Domo- Farm Frites... (both teams known in the bunch for liking the needle...) Milram & T-Mobile... not to mention time with Quickstep...
Marcus Ljungquist: Cantina Tollo (with Matt White) / Credit Agricole / CSC
Steven de Jongh: TVM & Rabo (Now gone)
Nicolas Portal: Caisse d' Epargne (retired due to 'cardiac trouble')
Shane Sutton: obv. Speak to Daryl Webster and other pros of his era...

    Disclaimer; This is from memory, I have currently no way to review the Avondetappe because im on a German IP and because this internet is horribly slow. Any Dutch person (and Belgians, but not sure) can view the Avondetappe broadcasts here.

    Regarding Michel Cornelisse, he was on the Avondetappe (Dutch talk show during the Tour) this year during the Tour de France. They talked about how he won the Tour of Luxembourg as his biggest win in his career. So he started talking. He was in one of those crazy breakaways in which he finished second, who took a ridiculous amount of time. I think he was the best placed in that breakaway, so he gained the leaders jersey.

    Every stage after that he one he lost (a lot of) time, but was the only one from the previously mentioned breakaway to have a motive to keep riding 100% full gas. In the end he (barely) won the GC.

    Again, if im wrong; memory didnt work properly then :P.

    I don't quite recall it the same way, but to be frank I was out the arse most days! I guess freak-days like that do happen (I once ended up in the break at Trophee des Grimpeurs, and on a mountain stage in Asturias, so yep, anything can happen!) I've suffered on his wheel far too many times to believe he's squeaky clean.

    Just remembered another name that raises suspicion: Laurent Biondi. Again linked to the Ton Ton Tapis team in 1990 (when surprise surprise he wins the worlds pro points race...) Later worked as DS for AG2R... not sure who he's with now...

    he is still directeur sportif at AG2R. He was sacked in 2005 after spending a night in jail for doping investigations but returned in 2007

    You're right and you've reminded me, thanks. :tu I originally recorded Biondi in Dopeology and then turned him off because he walked free, but since then I started to record arrests regardless of the outcome. So he needs re-illuminating. He's still in the database, he's just "turned off" at the moment.

    True Nardello has never been tested positive  ;)
    However he was member of MAPEI between 94 and 2002 & Telekom 2003-2006 where leaders & key helpers systematically took EPO.
    Furthermore he's cited in the USADA file as the guy who intimidated Simeone during the Tour'2004 after he was reeled in by the peloton in the 18th stage.
    May be the Puerto trial or Ferrari's case in november will tell us more about Daniele ...

    Crap! Just deleted a paragraph worth of info on Lotto... ::)

    To paraphrase:
    Marc Sergeant - Links to the Panasonic 'doping' system under Peter Post.
    Mario Aerts - as mentioned.
    Herman Frison - Histor-Sigma, Tulip (some rumours, nothing more), Lotto under JL VDB.
    Bart Leysen - (Unsure if he's with Lotto or Katusha at present) Lotto under JL VDB, Mapei...
    Marc Wauters - very interesting career, including stints as rider with Lotto, and Rabobank.
    Michel Elijzen - Rabo conti, Rabobank, Cofidis, Lotto...

    Jean Pierre Heyndrickx is a guy that needs looking into.
    Funny story when we raced against one another: I always got along really well with him, and when we were at Ronde van Midden-Zeeland in 89 or 90 I remember riding up behind him and slapping his arse... he went utterly mad at me, cursing and carrying on... I didn't realise until a bit later that I'd inadvertantly burst his bubble of amphets! So much for slow release!

    As I say, a lot of supposition but if anyone's got spare time, could be worth looking into.

    I know that Sergeant tested positive in his career as a rider, but I can't publish it because I haven't seen the source myself.

    Biondi is back "on". It's worth noting however that he successfully appealed his criminal conviction.

    Can give you the reference for Sergeant but I haven't seen it so I'm not 110%. It's an old print edition of L'Equipe, I think. Dates back to '84 or something like that.

    Just wondering what is with Elijzen that makes him considered to be dodgy? DS for Lotto? He has not had a great career at all, just scoring one win in an Eneco Tour prologue.

    Cool! So he's not checking every issue, my info actually states two separate positives for Marc Sergeant on 13 April 1983 (Ruta del Sol) and the 1985 Scheldeprijs from which he was DQ'd. Both unknown substances.

    First one from L'Equipe which I haven't seen. Second no source at all that I know of.

    So with the Servais Knaven thing, the name of Jeroen Blijlevens has come up. I had forgotten about him, 1994-1999 TVM. 2000 Polti.
    Spoiler (hover to show)

    Blijleven is to be part of the ex-Rabobank team as Directeur Sportif for the mens team.

    Hey guys... have just spoken to the old man... there's a s**tload of mags, etc in the loft in boxes... he sold a load a few years ago, so he's unsure of what's left. I will have a dig about but might take a while. I also have a few boxes of mags/newspapers from my days in Belg, but they're back in Australia at the moment. When I eventually get them out of storage I have a nosey too...

    I'm wondering if the BWB, KNWU, FFC might have records of past indiscretions?

    I've also emailed Joe Parkin to see if he has any recollections that didn't make it into 'Dog in a Hat'... I know there's a few 'stories' missing, but having been close to Joe I have to say that he is very discreet. We'll wait and see...

    I'm sure they do have records, but they're not public. It's really difficult because everything's dirty laundry. If this was a palmarès enquiry, you could probably get the info out of them.  ;D I still have about two or three other positives, not team staff today as far as I know, which remain in the vault until such time as I find some published sources of them. Guy I know has even better records from the 80s but he had to visit public archives to get his sources for most of them.

    No idea, search, sorry!  :-[

    I did have a look and the only archives of daily newspapers I have digital access to (which go back to the 80's) are El Pais and Times - and obviously there's nothing in there regarding Marc Sergeant. L'Equipe does not seem to have an online archive of these days at all - but Het Belang van Limburg has. I don't have access but maybe jojo can step in, often these archives are available from national universities (or via vpn)

    They HAVE met.  I remember an episode from 2002 - I think it was in April - when Fuentes, Bjarne and I were in the same hotel room in Spain.  I can still remember how the hotel looks.  Bjarne wanted to meet him, but afterwards  Fuentes was angry that Bjarne came with me.  I think that Fuentes wanted to keep it as private as possible, says Hamilton.
