COPENHAGEN (AP) - Former Rabobank cyclist Rolf Sorensen of Denmark has admitted to doping in the 1990s.

A professional from 1986 to 2002, Sorensen says he "apologizes humbly for the long, long period with lies" for using EPO and, to some extent, cortisone.

Throughout his career, Sorensen stubbornly denied doping allegations.

The Danish rider's wins include stages in the Tour de France and the Giro d'Italia. He also has won one-day races including the Liege-Bastogne-Liege.

Sorensen was on the Rabobank team from 1996-2000. He is the latest rider from the now disbanded Rabobank team to admit to doping, following the likes of Michael Boogerd of the Netherlands and Michael Rasmussen of Denmark.
