D'Hont writing second book, about Ullrich

Jef d'Hont's book Confessions of a Cycling Soigneur set off shockwaves throughout pro cycling when it was issued this spring. Now the Belgian has said that there is more to come. "I am writing a second book with more doping disclosures," he told SportBild. And those disclosures will center on one very prominent name: "There will be new evidence against Jan Ullrich."

"Jan Ullrich doped with EPO in 1996," d'Hont said bluntly, even though a court has issued an injunction prohibiting such statements, at Ullrich's request. "I am not afraid of the attorneys, because I am writing the truth," d'Hont said.
