    I saw he was listed last on the roster and was suprised. I guess pulling and carrying water is more likely to build you up.

    "T-Mobile's Jan Ullrich will line up in the Giro d'Italia with dossard 219 - the last number in the field. But after successfully finishing his first race of the season in Romandie last Sunday, Ullrich is not too concerned with superstition.

    "The knee has held up well, and I could feel that I was making small improvements," said Ullrich, who called finishing the Tour de Romandie "a small victory for myself."

    Ullrich is now looking forward to the Giro for some more racing kilometres. It's a tour that "only starts to get really hard in the latter stages of the three weeks," according to Der Kaiser.

    Ullrich's long time mentor and T-Mobile directeur sportif Rudy Pevenage believes, "The last week is really tough. There is no let-up on the program." And, it's a "further important step" on the way to Ullrich's optimal Tour form.

    Pevenage has nominated two riders from T-Mobile's core Tour squad to join Ullrich at the Giro: world time trial champ Michael Rogers, and 2004 Giro runner-up Serguei Gonchar. Rounding out the nine rider roster on the 3.526 km route are the Australian Scott Davis, Czech neo-pro Frantisek Rabon, Jörg Ludewig, Matthias Kessler and the sprint duo of Olaf Pollack and André Korff."

    Sergei Gonchar? I guess the Penguins didn't make the playoffs.

    Lance supported Danielson who won last year's TDG, then Lance went on to win the TDF. Not saying that Jan will win the TDF this year. Just that a #1 rider supporting a teammate for training purposes is not remarkable.

    Did Lance fetch food and water for any of his other teammates? Just asking out of ignorance.
