AUDIO / Jan Ullrich temporary hero - Norddeutscher Rundfunk
  • Moritz Cassalette, Martin Seidemann (Germany)

July 1997: Jan Ullrich wins the Tour de France. As the only German so far. This triumph made him a world star overnight. The opinion is unanimous: Ullrich will win the tour many more times. But that will never happen again. The talent of the century in cycling is too undisciplined, turns in the doping carousel, has to resign, gets deeper and deeper into a downward spiral. Alcohol and drug abuse ruin the marriage of the father of four and bring him to the brink of death. How could that happen? This podcast tells the story of a fallen hero in seven episodes. A temporary hero. Author and Host: Moritz Cassalette. Editor: Martin Seidemann
