The Swiss are who Jan had his racing licence with.Cobblestones said:Different opponents. He never settled anything with the Swiss.
I don't feel sorry for him - he earned lots of money from his career, a career fueled on doping.
But to just go after Ullrich on his own would certainly be unjust. He was part of a doping regime - aided and abetted by his team and others who are still involved in cycling today who have escaped punishment.
If we are to try and clean up cycling then we cannot just simply shrug our collective shoulders or sweep it under the rug.
If riders who obviously doped are not punished and have their earnings and titles stripped than it sends a message to others that doping pays.
