Jan Ullrich retires

This morning in Hamburg, Germany, Jan Ullrich announced the end of his active cycling career. Jan's two most prestigious accomplishments were winning the 1997 Tour de France and a gold medal at the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney, Australia. More than seven months after the Operacion Puerto investigation flared up, with no end in sight for Jan, and obviously having worn him out, he is now looking forward to new professional challenges and spending more time with his family.
