Dean Denies Any Knowledge of Doping During Stint At Postal Services
14 Oct, 2012

New Zealand's longest standing World Tour Professional Julian Dean has publicly denied any knowledge of systematic doping practices at former team United Postal Services.  Despite the coming forth and prosecution of nearly a dozen riders from the once great team Dean has stated these practices we amongst a select squad in the team and one focussed around the Tour de France hopefuls.

In an interview with Fairfax NZ News, the Orica-GreenEdge rider believes that his own objectives as a sprinter and because he was not at that stage a Tour de France rider, may have had a role to play.
 
"I didn't really fit into that, they had a very directed team for the Tour de France and put a lot of energy into those guys," he said.
 
"Because I was a sprinter I would do things like the Vuelta or some of the other bigger stage races over the years, without being considered for the Tour because there wasn't much I could contribute."
 
Dean explained that he never received orders to dope nor was he witness to the activities so detailed in the dossier.
 
"It was not something that I ever came across," the 37-year-old said.
