AMSTERDAM, Netherlands, March 6 (UPI) -- Dutch cycling champ Michael Boogerd has admitted doping during the last decade of his career that ended in 2007.

In a television interview broadcast Wednesday, Boogerd said he used erythropoietin, blood transfusions and cortisone to boost his performance while a member of the Rabobank team, DutchNews.nl reported.

Boogerd said he mainly used doping during training periods in preparation for races.

He is the eighth Rabobank cyclist to admit doping.

Boogerd won two stages of the Tour de France and a string of other titles. He was Dutch Champion in 1997, 1998 and 2006.
