The Telekom Affair – In May 2007, several former riders admitted to using banned substances (including EPO ) while riding for the team in the mid-1990s, including Erik Zabel , Rolf Aldag , Brian Holm ,  Bjarne Riis ,  Bert Dietz , Udo Bölts and Christian Henn including the seasons in which Riis and Jan Ullrich won the Tour de France.  Team doctors Andreas Schmid and Lothar Heinrich also confessed to participating and administering banned substances. The latter was Team Telekom's sporting director until 3 May 2007, when he was suspended following allegations published in former team member Jef d'Hont 's book. 
The Story: In February 2005 Canseco released his autobiography and steroid tell-all, Juiced , Wild Times, Rampant 'Roids, Smash Hits, and How Baseball Got Big. In it he described himself as 'the chemist' having experimented on himself for years. He claimed to have educated and personally injected many players including Mark McGwire, Rafael Palmeiro, Juan Gonzalez, Ivan Rodriguez, and Jason Giambi. In his second book, Vindicated , Canseco added Magglio Ordonez to the list of players he had educated and injected with steroids. He also said he introduced Alex Rodriguez to a trainer/PED supplier after Rodriguez had asked where he could get steroids.
