Jörg Jaksche has been invited to meet with the Austrian cycling federation's antidoping committee on September 19, the Federation announced Friday. At the cyclist's request, the hearing will be closed to the public, and no details other than the verdict will be released, although the verdict may not be announced immediately.

The German rider lives in Kitzbühel, Austria, and therefore rides with an Austrian license. The beginning of July he admitted to having doped for many years, and added that he hoped to reduce any suspension he might face because of his confession. (SW)
