Schumacher will share doping info

•?Cyclist Stefan Schumacher has acknowledged in an interview with a German magazine that he used banned substances including EPO and human growth hormone.

The 31-year-old German rider was quoted Friday as telling the weekly Der Spiegel that he would be prepared to share what he knows with the World Anti-Doping Agency, the International Cycling Union and others “if that is wanted.”

He said, “In the beginning, I fought an inner battle over the doping substances, but at some point this conflict is gone. Doping becomes an everyday thing, like the plate of pasta after training.”

Schumacher was given a two-year ban after his samples from the 2008 Tour de France showed traces of the blood-boosting hormone CERA.
