Ullrich and CSC

Has anyone wondered what a terror Ullrich would have been to Lance had he made what most people would have considered the smart move and joined CSC, instead of Coast/Bianchi? He'd have Tyler and Sastre as his mountain men, and possibly a better team for the TTT (hard to tell going by CSC's results in the TTT since they had Tyler just 3 stages after he fractured his collar bone).

Ullrich, Tyler, and Sastre working together, plus throw in Vino as a friend of Ullrich, plus Beloki in the Alps... and let's not forget the Euskaltel-Euskadi teammates, Zubeldia and Mayo. This would be a totally different race I think.

Course, we don't know if Tyler would have played second fiddle to Ullrich, but I guess he would have had to. And if CSC played it right, they could have picked up Zulle when he left Coast. If there ever was a team to beat Lance, I think that would be it.

Think Ullrich is kicking himself now after seeing Tyler's performance today in Stage 16?
