German Jörg Jaksche, who was suspended for one year after he confessed to using performance-enhancing drugs during his career as a professional cyclist, admitted Friday that was losing hope on finding a new team, and may have to end his career.

"I do not bet a lot of money on the fact that I can resume my career," said Jaksche according to sid. Jaksche, who has been a regular name in the news after a year of tell-all in the German press, thought his confession would have a different outcome in light of the new movement to clean up the sport.

"I thought that my sincerity would be rewarded, but it seems to me now that it is being punished," said Jaksche. The 32 year-old's suspension for confessing to using the services of Spanish doctor Eufemiano Fuentes, is up in July.
