Pedersen, Lilholt confess to cortisone use

Following Jesper Skibby's confessions of doping in his recent autobiography, fellow Danes Per Pedersen and Søren Lilholt have admitted to using substances that were subsequently added to the banned list. "I got resources which appeared later on the doping list of the doctor," Lilholt told Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten. "Those resources had then not been prohibited," he added.

During his six years as a professional, Lilholt won stages in Paris Nice, the Tour of Luxembourg and the Tour of Britain. He also claimed victory in the Belgian one-day race E3 Prijs Harelbeke.
