Cycling: Ullrich Looking for New Team

German cyclist Jan Ullrich says he is looking for a new team after missing the Tour de France and being fired by the T-Mobile team because of his alleged involvement in a Spanish doping scandal.

Ullrich denies any wrongdoing.

The 1997 Tour de France champion told a Swiss daily Tuesday that he wants to end his career with a Tour victory next year. Ullrich told the paper he has never cheated other riders.

The 32-year-old Ullrich says he has been in contact with retired seven-time Tour champion Lance Armstrong's Discovery Channel team, but he says has no agreement to join the team.

Ullrich's name was one of 56 on a list of cyclists who allegedly had contact with a Spanish doctor Eufemiano Fuentes. The cyclists allegedly went to his Madrid clinic for blood doping or to buy performance enhancing drugs.
