Jan Ullrich said that some of his comments to L'Equipe recently were falsely translated from German to French. The newspaper quoted him as saying, "I don't owe anyone anything and have enough money to live on until the end of my days." Writing on his website, janullrich.de, he said, "I never said that and didn't mean it. My statement was, that I don't owe anyone anything and am independent of sponsors, the media and federations. I never said anything about money or that I have enough of it."

He also promised to present his side of the whole story -- some day. "I will share my complete opinions of the occurrences of the last years, at the time that I find right."
