TDF News: Basso & Ulrich out!

Ullrich and Basso out of Le Tour

Pre-race favourites Jan Ullrich and Ivan Basso are out of the Tour de France after both were named in an anti-doping investigation in Spain.

Ullrich, team-mate Oscar Sevilla and team manager Rudy Pevenage have all been suspended by the T-Mobile team.

Basso has now been excluded by organisers of the Tour, which starts in Strasbourg on Saturday.

All four denied any wrong-doing when allegations first began to emerge earlier this week.
