Everyone loves a scandal. In cycling that means doping and cheating.
Festina was a great team. The team’s soigneur was pulled over and caught with 250 vials of EPO and steroids. Further investigation revealed that systematic doping was behind Festina’s success. The 1998 “Festina Affair” exposed widespread systematic doping in cycling. TVM was one of the first other teams to be implicated.
I love memorabilia from disgraced and/or defunct organizations.
