Another Operación Puerto rider is free to ride again: Jörg Jaksche, a German citizen living in Austria. The Austrian cycling federation will not hold hearings against him as its General Secretary, Rudolf Massak, told the German press agency sid. However, they are retaining the option to reopen the case if needed.
Jaksche was removed from his team's Tour de France roster shortly before the Tour start and did not race again this season. He has a contract with Manolo Saiz through the 2007 season.
