Here's what we know and what has been made public so far. Former professional cyclist Joe Papp has plead guilty to selling performance enhancing drugs...including selling drugs like EPO and HGH to both professional and amateur athletes.
More imporatntly he's cooperating with authorities and naming his customers.
We also know that those customers include cyclist and other athletes....perhaps even triathletes.
In total Papp made more than $80,000 dollars selling performance enhancing drugs to 187 athletes. Those athlete's names have not been made public but Papp is cooperating with officials from the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency.
According to VeloNews:
"Anywhere from 15 to 25 masters, elite and pro cyclists have been notified of non-analytical violations as a result of having allegedly conspired with Papp, sources said. The names will not be announced publicly until and unless the individual cases are resolved against the riders."
Papp's professional cycling career ended after he was suspended for testing positive for synthetic testosterone after a race in Turkey. He is perhaps best know for his testimony he offered at the Flyod Landis case.
"The matter for which I publicly acknowledged my guilt today in Pittsburgh had nothing to do with my appearance at the Landis hearing. I didn’t testify against Floyd Landis in that hearing,” Papp noted. “My testimony was about my own personal experiences with the drug testosterone and how it is generally perceived within the peloton. That was it. I told the story of how testosterone works and can help you as a cyclist by enhancing recovery."
