Anti-Doping Denmark (ADD) and the Sports Confederation of Denmark (DIF) published a report after a three-year investigation in Danish cycling. According to Danish medias, this report has been centered around the years between 1998 and 2015. But Michael Rasmussen, the former Tour de France king of the mountain, explained and accused ADD and DIF to selective edit parts of his testimony. 

 

"It is very clear from the text that was sent to me that they would push me into silence and I had to destroy the documents I had received. It is quite unequivocal", Rasmussen told Ekstra Bladet. "I have declared myself ready to tell the truth, and I have signed that I will speak the truth. I have not signed that I will conceal the truth."

 

According to Ekstra Bladet, Nicki Sorensen has admitted to doping during the 2004 Olympic Games, but that has since been removed from the report. He admitted that he used drugs in the first part of his career.

 

Since his own admission of doping in 2013, Rasmussen has accused the finger at several former and current riders. He has stated that he taught Ryder Hesjedal how to dope in 2003 and gave details about the doping practices at the Rabobank.

 

Rasmussen is not satisfied with this report. "I simply cannot figure out the motive to protect Nicki Sorensen - and others for that matter", said Rasmussen. "I have not seen all 100 pages of the report, but I can at least make it clear that the part of it that concerns me, it is extremely diluted."
