Former Tour de France champion Jan Ullrich is among 86 people being investigated for alleged doping-related crimes.


Ullrich and German Telekom team-mate Danilo Hondo are among the names on a list in the hands of the Italian Olympic Committee, but the 1997 Tour de France champion denies any wrongdoing.


All eight Giro entries from Spanish team Ibanesto.com are also reportedly under suspicion.

Two Ibanesto managers and a team doctor are among two dozen non-racers being investigated for doping violations.

Four racers for the Lampre team, whose lead rider Gilberto Simoni won the three-week event, are also being quizzed.

Gilberto Simoni has already been cleared of any wrongdoing.
