Jan Ullrich has announced his withdrawal from the Swiss Cycling Federation, effective immediately. He "cannot be reasonably expected to belong to a federation which injures the personal rights and professional freedom of a member and which refuses to take a position on specific complaints," according to Ullrich's personal website.
"For months, officials of Swiss Cycling and Swiss Olympic have conducted a press campaign against me with the contradictory statements," wrote Ullrich. "I have no more trust in them. This withdrawal does not mean that I am ending my career -- I have contacted other cycling federations concerning a license for 2007."
It was not known which federations Jan Ullrich meant or where he might move his residence to.
