Ivan Basso denies doping

Giro d'Italia champion Ivan Basso denied doping Tuesday. The day before he was involved in Spain's Operation Puerto doping scandal.

Basso said he made contact with a doctor at the heart of the case, Eufemiano Fuentes, and gave him a blood sample with the intention of doping - but never actually did.

"I have not done anything illegal," he said at a news conference. "It was a moment of weakness on my part. I've never taken any doping substance nor undergone any illegal blood transfusions."
