Bo Hamburger (born 24 May 1970 in Frederiksberg) is a former Danish professional road racing cyclist. He retired in 2006.

Biography[edit]

After ending his career, Bo started a building company, and a bike shop. Since 2013 he is leading Sports Director on Christina Watches.

Doping[edit]

He was fired from Team CSC in 2001, after a positive EPO test. He was later cleared legally since the B test was below the limit, but still higher than normal. Since then, the Danish Cycle Union refused to let Bo Hamburger represent Denmark. Hamburger did through legal means fight the exclusion.

In his book Den største pris - en cykelrytters bekendelser (The Greatest Cost - Confession of a Cyclist) released in Denmark on 7 November 2007, he admitted to using EPO and human growth hormone from 1995 to 1997.[1]

His name was also on the list of doping tests published by the French Senate on 24 July 2013 that were collected during the 1998 Tour de France and found positive for EPO when retested in 2004.[2]
