No links to Ullrich in Freiburg Clinic

Investigators who searched the University of Freiburg Clinic as part of an investigation into allegations that the clinic participated in doping rides from the T-Mobile team found no evidence that Jan Ullrich had used the lab's services. The German Tour de France winner has been linked with the Spanish doping doctor Eufemiano Fuentes through Operación Puerto.

"As far as I have heard, there is no reason to think that Jan Ullrich was doped in Freiburg," said the head public prosecutor in Freiburg, Wolfgang Meier. On Wednesday his office conducted searches of the University Clinic and the private homes of the former T-Mobile team doctors. The searches were based on testimony from Patrik Sinkewitz, who said that the 2006 T-Mobile team had organized doping through the clinic in the early part of the season as well as during the 2006 Tour de France.
