CAS bans 1997 Tour winner Jan Ullrich for 2 years

Updated: February 09, 2012, 05:59


LAUSANNE, Switzerland (AP) Sport's highest court has banned 1997 Tour de France winner Jan Ullrich for two years and stripped him of his third-place finish in the 2005 race for a doping violation.

Ullrich's suspension comes three days after CAS banned Alberto Contador for two years and stripped him of his 2010 Tour title for doping.

The Court of Arbitration for Sport ruled that the 38-year-old German was linked to the Operation Puerto, a 2006 Spanish doping probe.

CAS says Ullrich is banned from cycling through August 2013 and all his results from May 2005 through his retirement in 2007 are annulled.

CAS, though, rejected the International Cycling Union's request to impose a lifetime ban and disqualify all Ullrich's results since May 2002.
