    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.
