Jan Ullrich, former Tour de France champion, set for Gran Fondo

Jan Ullrich, one of the most dominating and decorated cyclists of his generation, is slated to ride in the seventh installment of Levi’s GranFondo in October, organizers announced Thursday.

Ullrich, 41, won the Tour de France at 23 in 1997 and finished second five times. He won gold and silver medals in the 2000 Sydney Olympics and is a two-time winner of the World Time Trial Championships.

But, like other riders in that era including former professional cyclist and Santa Rosa resident Levi Leipheimer, who helped found his eponymous fondo, Ullrich admitted to doping during his career. His results since 2005 have been annulled because of cheating.

He retired in 2007.

The Oct. 3 event is modeled on the Italian tradition of events that are not billed as races but more as group rides. The event has drawn thousands of cyclists to the region each year, raising nearly $1.2 million over the course of its history for various charities and nonprofits, organizers said.
