SHOWS: MADRID, SPAIN (FEBRUARY 11, 2013)(REUTERS - ACCESS ALL) 1. RETIRED PROFESSIONAL CYCLIST JOERG JAKSCHE WALKS UP TO MICROPHONE IN COURT, SPANISH TRANSLATOR JOINS HIM 2. (SOUNDBITE)(German)(Spanish translation) RETIRED PROFESSIONAL CYCLIST JOERG JAKSCHE, ASKED WHAT HAPPENED WHEN HE MET DR. FUENTES, SAYS: "He asked me what I did in terms of doping, and that he can organise practically all the medicaments which enhanced performance, blood transfusions, EPO, anabolic steroids, IGF1, artificial haemoglobin." (HE PAUSES TWICE TO ALLOW THIS TO BE TRANSLATED INTO SPANISH) 3. JOERG JAKSCHE IN COURT 4. (SOUNDBITE)(German)(Spanish translation) RETIRED PROFESSIONAL CYCLIST JOERG JAKSCHE SAYS: "I just said, EPO, IGF, anabolic steroids, blood transfusions, everything which was on the markets then." 5. QUESTION BY JUDGE ASKING ASKED IF HE HAD BEEN OFFERED HAEMOGLOBIN OR OTHER PRODUCTS THAT MIGHT HAVE COME FROM RUSSIA OR EASTERN EUROPE. (SOUNDBITE)(German) RETIRED PROFESSIONAL CYCLIST JOERG JAKSCHE SAYS: "Yes." STORY: Retired professional cyclist Joerg Jaksche told a court in Madrid on Monday (February 11) that Dr. Eufemiano Fuentes had offered him a variety of performance-enhancing drugs to boost his power. Jaksche, Ivan Basso and Marcos Serrano are scheduled to give testimony at the Operacion Puerto trial on Monday which is investigating allegations of a doping ring in cycling and other sports. Both Basso and Serrano will testify via videolink. Germany's Jaksche, a retired professional cyclist who admitted doping, was testifying in person. Jaksche told the court that he flew to the Canary Islands where Fuentes lived. Fuentes drove him back from the airport and asked him questions about his training regime. "He asked me what I did in terms of doping, and that he can organise practically all the medicaments which enhanced performance, blood transfusions, EPO, anabolic steroids, IGF1, artificial haemoglobin," said Jaksche. IGF1 is Insulin-like Growth Factor while EPO stimulates the body to produce more blood cells. Jaksche went on: "I just said, EPO, IGF, anabolic steroids, blood transfusions, everything which was on the markets then." German Jan Ullrich and Italian Basso, who were both excluded from the 2006 Tour de France, are among professional cyclists to be linked with Fuentes, who denies involvement in doping. As Spain's current anti-doping legislation was not in force in 2006 when the police raids took place, Fuentes and his fellow accused, including his sister Yolanda, are being tried for violating public health regulations. Alberto Contador, the Spaniard stripped of one of his three Tour titles after testing positive for a banned substance, will appear on Feb. 22. The Puerto trial is being closely followed in Spain and beyond because anti-doping authorities hope it will lead to evidence of wrongdoing in sports other than cycling being made available.
