Tuttosport spoke with Jan ullrich in Kitzbühl, Austria. Tuttosport asked Ullrich
if he would come back as a professional rider. Ullrich said: "No I don't think so, especially since German cycling is dead
and buried." Ullrich said he won't return as a professional rider but he would like to do more charity rides. Ullrich already
did a charity ride in October last year. Ullrich said: "I have two children and I know what you can do something beautiful
for young children." Ullrich added: "I therefore decided to return to cycling but only for charity events for young children.
It feels good to do this because its nice to do something for people who have their life in front of them."
Ullrich did retire because "it was no longer possible to continue for me."
Ullrich continued by saying: "There was a frightening rage against me. I felt alone against an army." Ullrich said he decided
that its better to think about his family and do good for others.
Ullrich didn't say much about 'Operacion Puerto' but asked about the fact that
only a few riders who were linked with Spanish doctor Eufemiano Fuentes are facing the consequenses while others continue
to ride, Ullrich said: "I can't say much about the others but in regard to Basso I must say that he behaved honestly. It shows
that he is a sensitive guy. The 'Operacion Puerto' left many dark areas. I don't think justice has been done."
