Franke trial postponed

The trial Jan Ullrich has against German doctor Werner Franke, has been postponed until November, a spokesperson of the court has announced.

Ulrich has taken Franke to court when the German said in an interview that he could prove that the 2006 Tour de France winner was a client of Doctor Eufemiano Fuentes. Franke said that he could prove that Ulrich paid the Spanish doctor 35,000 Euros.

The case was due to go before the court this Friday in Hamburg, but has now been postponed until November. Franke recently made headlines after claiming Alberto Contador's 2007 Tour win was "the greatest swindle in sporting history", adding that documents "simply landed in my briefcase" which allegedly show the Discovery Channel rider was involved in Operación Puerto.
