Jan Ullrich Raided - DNA Seized

German investigators searched homes and offices belonging not only to Jan Ullrich, Wolfgang Strohband and Rudy Pevenage, but also to former T-Mobile team manager Walter Godefroot. Godefroot confirmed the search but said, "I was treated as a witness and not as a suspect." The 63-year-old Belgian is now an advisor to the Astana Team.

The authorities were looking for doping products or evidence of doping. During the raid, the authorities also collected DNA samples from Ullrich's household items.

Jan no home. Probably on his honeymoon.

It appears that authorities plan to compare the seized DNA samples to blood samples collected during the Operacion Puerto affair in Spain.

Some cyclists, including Jan Ullrich, have been sued for "fraud" for accepting money from sponsors while consciously doping. This could get ugly.
