    I thought this exerpt was a bit amusing...either the writer is not farmiliar with cycling or he gaffed.

    "Germany's Jan Ullrich has insisted his Team Telekom are solely focused on beating US Postal's six-times Tour de France champion Lance Armstrong."
    Fredo, you're my older brother and I love you...but don't ever take sides, with anyone, against the family again...ever.

    He can mean mug all he wants, but that earring makes him look quite silly

    I've been thinking the same thing. Lose the earring, Jan.

    He's been wearing earrings for years now. But yes it looks ridiculous when he's geared up.

    This totally reminds me of Gilberto Simoni. After winning the Giro in 2003 he promised to PUNISH Lance in the Mountains of the Tour that same year...He got dropped so bad that year and had to eat some sweet humble pie!

    Uhlrich looks better than any year since 1997 though I think. Should be a great Tour this year. T-Mobile has an AWESOME team this year...

    But what if Jan has a bad day? How long will the team allow that before they push Vino or Kloden to the driver seat...Could cause some tension on the team...
