In February 2012, the Court of Arbitration for Sport banned Ullrich for two years for blood doping, finding that he was ''fully engaged'' in Fuentes' drug program. At the time, the retired racer said he had ''contact'' with Fuentes but didn't directly acknowledge doping. He didn't contest the CAS ruling, saying he wanted to ''put an end to the issue.''
