Tour de France director Christian Prudhomme wants the help of Erik Zabel to eradicate the use of doping products in the peloton.
The German admitted to using EPO during the 1996 Tour de France, when he won the green points jersey. According to Prudhomme, Zabel can help to explain why doping products are used within the peloton. "This way he can help to stop the use of drugs in cycling," Prudhomme told SportWereld.
In the interview Prudhomme repeated his support for the decision by team managers Gianluigi Stanga (Milram) and Bjarne Riis (CSC) to stay away from the Tour. "We spoke with all the involved sponsors. By staying away from the Tour, Riis and Stanga have shown they support our stance," he said.
