donrhummy should win a prize for # of new posts.


Intriguing quote from Ulrich. I've always liked him in spite of the doping scandals/accusations because he seemed to do his own thing and not worry too much about what people think of him. Unlike Lance & Co who are always putting a spin on stuff, yada-yada

I read that quote in ProCycling last Tour and thought it was cool that he realizes that he's a lazy ass.

I read it recently, quoted in Lance Armstrong's War which chronicles Lance's 2004 season.

He wasn't lazy, just over-hyped.
