Gerolsteiner's Holczer accuses Leipheimer of blood manipulation in 2005

Levi Leipheimer Tour de France 2005

Gerolsteiner director Holczer accuses Leipheimer of blood manipulation during 2005.

Holczer made the accusation during the presentation of his book called “Garantiert Positiv” (“Guaranteed Positive”) in Germany on Wednesday.

He claimed that the UCI informed him on the first rest day of the 2005 Tour de France in Grenoble that Leipheimer's blood values had an off-score co-efficient of 132.8. That is just 0.2 under the limit of 133. A normal score is 85-95 and scores over 133 can be considered evidence of doping.
