I think working with Riis would have been great for Ullrich, but I agree it would have been tough with Tyler there as GC contender. Ullrich is ideally placed at Bianchi, where he is the main GC contender for the Tour, and Casero for the Vuelta. Probably they'll do the Vuelta and Ullrich will work for Casero. And while there are not that many big stars on that team aside from the two grand-tour winners, I think they'll start to attract a few more in the future. In the meantime, they seem solid enough working with Ullrich and have done a great job. It's his first grand tour in 2 years and no one was even expecting better than top ten. Ullrich needed a team focused on him and Bianchi seems to be working out very well. We'll see how they do in grand tours in the future.
