German Jörg Jaksche will race for a salary of one euro when he returns to competition with the Cinelli-OPD after serving a one-year suspension for doping. Jaksche had previously given up on finding a team and thought about studying law until the Cinelli-OPD squad picked him up.
"I am the first professional cyclist to ride for one euro," sais Jaksche according to the Süddeutsche Zeitung. "If necessary, I would ride for nothing. It was important to me that I am the one who decides to end my career."
The 32-year-old Jaksche previously raced for Liberty Seguros, CSC, ONCE and Deutsche Telekom. He was tied to the Operación Puerto doping scandal in 2006 and admitted to working with Dr. Eufemiano Fuentes. He will resume racing at the Tour Méditerranéen in February according to the AFP.
