German cycling VP investigated

German Cycling Federation (BDR) vice president Udo Sprenger is being investigated by prosecutors after an anonymous person accused him of aiding riders in illegal doping in a June broadcast. The unidentified accuser's identity was disguised on the broadcast, and the person has not been identified.

Sprenger filed a complaint with German authorities about the allegations which were broadcast on June 25 on ARD television. The accuser said that Sprenger ran an illegal fund to help riders on the Team Nürnberger team purchase banned substances during his time as directeur sportif of the squad. Sprenger ran the team from 1998 to 2002.
