    Remember when...

    ....in 1995 Duetsche Telekom were so bereft of wins, they had to merge with ZG-Mobili to get a Tour start?

    Here's the combined team.

    Telekom/ZG

    201. Rolf Aldag (Dui)
    202. Udo Bolts (Dui)
    203. Stefano Colage (Ita)
    204. Andrea Ferrigato (Ita)
    205. Jens Heppner (Dui)
    206. Olaf Ludwig (Dui)
    207. Vladimir Poelnikov (Oek)
    208. Nelson Rodriguez (Col)
    209. Erik Zabel (Dui)


    Seems a long way from the Pro Tour, doesn't it?

    I've never seen it written as Duitsland before. Guess I'm not very cultured.

    I never knew Zabel was ever found Drunk Under the Influence. I thought that was Ullrich?

    And "ui" is pronounced (roughly) "ow", as in "ow, that hurts."

    So ... Duitsland is pronounced "Dowtsland" or "Doubtsland" - just in case you had any, er, um, doubts.
