Jaksche on doping, pro cycling and life

A long interview with a ex-professional, Jörg Jaksche.

It’s a long interview but we decided to keep the camera rolling. Jaksche talks about:

  • Riding for Oleg Tinkov during the Russian’s early tenure as a team sponsor.
  • How he’s managed retirement.
  • Why he still rides his bike.
  • And, finally, the incident of stage nine of the 2003 Tour de France when he watched team-mate Joseba Beloki crash out of contention for the title… and effectively end his racing career.
