Ex-Belgian racer Johan Museeuw receives jail time

Former QuickStep rider admitted guilt in 2007

Retired Belgian pro cyclist Johan Museeuw, who last raced for QuickStep in 2004, received a 10-month suspended jail sentence Tuesday for his involvement in a 2003 doping scandal, according to a recent AP report.

Museeuw, a multiple Paris-Roubaix winner and 1996 World Road champion, was accused of possessing endurance-enhancing erythropoietin (EPO) and Aranesp. The 43-yar-old Museeuw had been banned for two years by Belgium's national cycling federation, and confessed in 2007.

The Belgian now runs his bicycle company, Museeuw Bikes, from Lokeren, Belgium.
