Swiss wait for Ullrich documents

There seems to be no end in sight for Swiss Cycling's investigation of Jan Ullrich, as they are still waiting for documents from Spain. Only when the documents are received, can a recommendation to the disciplinary committee be made.

Bernhard Welten, who is leading the investigation, told, "I figure it will be the end of January before the UCI gives me the documents. Then the recommendation will be either acquittal or lifelong ban. In my eyes Jan Ullrich is a repeat offender, because of his six-month suspension by the German federation (in 2002)."
