Jörg Paffrath - Jörg Paffrath
Life and Sports Career
As an amateur, he started for the PSV Köln club.  His greatest sporting achievements was the victory in the Tour of Bavaria in 1990. Paffrath was in June 1996 at the German Championships tested positive and received a lock of 6 months. In the same year he ended his career. In 1997, Paffrath publicly admitted that he had been doping with a total of 24 different drugs for four years.  In 1998, Paffrath received a lifelong ban from the Association of German Cyclists , which it justified with the damage to image caused by Paffrath's statement. A request for mercy made by Paffrath in 2001 was rejected without justification, another, submitted in 2003, ultimately led to the suspension being lifted.
