Ullrich separates from girlfriend

T-Mobile star Jan Ullrich has separated from his girlfriend Gaby Weis and mother of their daughter Sarah. Ullrich confirmed the news on his website, janullrich.de, saying that, "We have found a fair solution for all sides, especially of course for our daughter Sarah. This decision is difficult enough, and we don't want to make any additional comment. I am sure that you will understand that this is our private affair and we want to keep it that way."

According to an article published in Germany's tabloid Bild am Sonntag, the couple gradually grew away from each other over the years. Ullrich, who had been with Gaby Weis for 11 years, was away from home for extended periods, including Christmas last year. However, the T-Mobile rider will continue to live in Scherzingen, Switzerland, where the couple moved two years ago.
