Jan Ullrich and his T-Mobile teammates arrived in Strasbourg yesterday evening, to be met by numerous journalists at their hotel. Ullrich again denied being a client of the recently uncovered Spanish doping network around Dr. Fuentes, and said, "I have nothing to do with the situation being described in the Spanish newspaper and have therefore turned the matter over to my attorneys. They will take the necessary steps."

When asked if he would submit to a DNA test, Ullrich responded, "I have not been accused of anything. But I will discuss that with my attorneys, too - but first I will ride the Tour."

Ullrich's attorneys may have to become active during the Tour de France, according to the German press agency sid. The Tour's 11th stage, on July 13, ends in Val d'Aran - on Spanish soil. "It is possible" that Ullrich will be taken in for questioning by the Spanish police, the Guardia Civil, when he arrives there, the media outlet said.
