Former Team Telekom soigneur Jef d'Hont is not backing down in his attempt to force a confession from Jan Ullrich. d'Hont appeared on German TV again on Tuesday evening where he once again pointed the finger at the 1997 Tour de France winner. "I repeat: in the second half of the 1990's Jan Ullrich used EPO and growth hormones," said d'Hont.
"I am certain of this matter," he continued. "I once injected EPO into his arm. Jan must tell the truth, just like Riis, Aldag and others have done in past weeks."
At a press conference in Gent, Belgium on Tuesday, former Telekom manger Walter Godefroot denied having ever encouraged or introduced doping within the team, something which d'Hont has previously claimed. Godefroot also said that while he considered d'Hont a friend, he intends to file suit against his former colleague.
