Jörg Jaksche clarified to Cyclingnews that there has been a misunderstanding regarding an earlier report that he offered to give a DNA sample to the UCI, but never got a response from the world governing body of cycling.

In an attempt to demonstrate his innocence and return to racing, the Austrian said that he had offered a DNA sample and permission to re-examine his urine samples from the past five years. "Also for substances that they weren't able to look for five years ago," he said to Eurosport.de.

In fact, Jaksche did get a letter of response and confirmation from UCI President Pat McQuaid, but he doesn't know yet when the test will be carried out. "I just haven't received a notification on the date and time of the testing yet," he said to Cyclingnews.
