Basso Admits Involvement in Spanish Doping Ring

MAY 08, 2007 -- ROME, Italy (BRAIN)--Italian pro cyclist Ivan Basso admitted involvement in the Spanish doping scandal and is cooperating with sports authorities, the Associated Press reported yesterday.

According to the report, Basso asked to talk to the Italian Olympic Committee (CONI) anti-doping prosecutor and offered his full cooperation during the investigation.

Last May, Basso's name turned up on a list of cyclists who allegedly had contact with a Spanish doctor accused of running a blood-doping clinic in Madrid. Basso was subsequently charged with using or attempting to use a banned substance.

Basso's attorney said that the 29-year-old cyclist would not be implicating other riders in the investigation.

Basso cut ties with the Discovery Channel pro team last week.
