Klöden pays 25,000 euros to end T-Mobile case

Andreas Klöden, soon to join up with Lance Armstrong's new RadioShack team, has paid a 25,000 euro financial settlement to the Bonn prosecutor's office in Germany, putting an end to an ongoing doping investigation against him.

Klöden, who was being investigated for the University of Freiburg case that involved blood doping in the 2006 Tour de France, has always maintained his innocence in the matter.

Under German law the payment was not an admission of guilt, but a way for the cyclist to put the case behind him and move on.

Last year Klöden's compatriot Jan Ullrich and mentor Rudy Pevenage paid the court settlements for the same investigation, preventing any further legal action against them in the case.
