Jesper Worre, (born 5 June 1959) is a former Danish professional bicycle racer and a former director of the Danmarks Cykle Union (DCU) by the board of directors.[1]

Biography[edit]

Worre competed in the team time trial event at the 1980 Summer Olympics.[2]

He was a professional between 1982 and 1992 and took part in the 1989 Tour de France, finishing 88th in the general classification.

Worre has once been tested positive for amineptine in 1992, he confessed to the use of doping, receiving a conditional suspension. Amineptine is a mild but pleasant stimulant and a fast-acting mood-brightener. Amineptine had been on the doping list for a couple of months before Worres confession of using amineptine, and was removed again from the list of banned performance-enhancing drugs shortly after.

Worre is now particularly known for his strong and uncompromising struggle against the use of doping in professional cycling, in both media and in the Danish cycling federation (DCU).
