Again, Ullrich wouldn’t directly address doping charges against himself, saying only:
Ullrich was suspended by Team T-Mobile on the eve of the 2006 Tour de France in the aftermath of Operacion Puerto, and was subsequently released from the team. He subsequently announced his retirement from cycling in 2007. Shortly thereafter he was matched via DNA sampling to blood stored by Fuentes.
Years of lawsuits and legal cases ensued, finally culminating in a Court of Arbitration for Sport decision in February 2012, giving him a back-dated two year suspension which expires this August.
