Ullrich in accident on training run but will be fit for Tour
July 1, 2005
CHALLANS, France (AP) -- Jan Ullrich's bid to upstage six-time champion Lance Armstrong at the Tour de France got off to a bad start Friday when he crashed into a team car during training.
The 1997 Tour winner was training with his T-Mobile team when he failed to spot a warning to brake and slammed into the car's back window.
He sustained minor cuts and scratches to his neck, but will be OK to start Saturday's 11.8-mile time trial from Fromentine to Noirmoutier-en-l'Ile.
``He did not see the special sign we make when the car has to brake,'' T-Mobile press officer Luuc Eisenga said by telephone. ``The window is smashed. But it's nothing serious. He'll be OK to start the race.''
Ullrich has finished runner-up five times at the Tour -- three times to Armstrong.

Special sign for braking? like brake lights?
