The Swiss are investigating Ullrich in the Operación Puerto affair and German civil prosecutor's are looking into fraud charges against him. As if that isn't enough, UCI president Pat McQuaid indicated that there may be even more involved, in an interview with Welt magazine.
"I have this idea, that the Swiss cycling federation is after Jan Ullrich not just because of Fuentes," he said. "I don't know exactly, it's just something I've heard. I speculate that there are also investigations of Ullrich in Germany and Belgium." He did not give specifics, saying, "There could be more against him [than just the Operación Puerto charges - ed.]. I can't say anything more."
