No Rain in the stage 19, or no Team Time Trial, Jan Ullrich would had win this Tour de France.
The most Superb Tour de France of the 21’s century.
Ullrich was so unique, i missed him so much… Every day i pray to see again a guy with the same high-class than Jan !
Aguaman knows what to do…!@#%&$
Fair enough – I did see the video of him crashing due to the spectator and its a bit big for a transfusion scar. Regardless, Ullrich is the most powerful rider I have ever seen, and I was quite sad when he fell on the wet roads. If the sun was shining, who knows what his time would have been. 57 k/hr is unbelievable
I guess it’s the injury of the crash from stage 15. He fell there to the left side
transfusion scar on armstrong at the 8 minute mark? Should have worn long sleeves like Indurain
cheating is beautiful
Goddamn, youre right. Nearly 57 km/h in the rain over 32.5 flat kms. I cant believe it but the numbers stand there.
Anybody noticed`they all looked like bodybuilders on their bikes during the Armstrong years? Must have been the steroids. Nowadays the top riders are much more slim with less muscles (Wiggins, Schleck, Froome, Contador).
Jan Ullrich didnt rode the course in the early morning to investigate the corners like Lance Armstrong but they made a video of the course.While the crew of Bianchi were filming the course they came across Armstrong investigating the course in heavy rain. Ullrich gained time in the straightforward roadparts but lost that time in the roundabouts and corners. But lost the tour in Alpe d’huez and the foolish mistake to chase Vinokourov and do all of the work. Lance was just following and waiting.
Prob my fav vid on youtube, awesome job. I miss Ulle
Ullrich on a time trial bike= just beautiful
god damn the tour is just not the same without them… there is something bland about the tour now…

I know man, I know, I am just pointing out that the commentators on that day definitely were looking at that and even before the stage suggested there could be a record setting pace. It’s a real shame Ullrich fell though, I think he would have won the stage, not the tour itself that day, but certainly the stage. He had Millar beat by 15 seconds midway through (as the video shows), and not only did he lose time with the fall, but he was riding conservative after that as well, losing more time!
They were. Check out the average speed at 32.5 km (6:30 into the video): 56.91 km per hour! That’s the faster than any individual time trial before or since! It wouldn’t have been enough to win the tour though: Armstrong was only 2 seconds slower. He needed 65.
I’ve never seen anyone take the first few KM’s so hard as Ullrich did here in such horrible, treacherous conditions! I remember the commentators saying they were on pace to break the average speed record for an idividual time trial! It was unreal how fast Ullrich was going, he went for it and ultimately took one too many risks and fell, but you can’t fault the guy for not trying. He had to do it, it was his only choice, he did that, but was just a bit unlucky. He at least deserved the stage win!
Ullrich´s Walser bike is the fastest beauty ever!!!
If you compare cycling and other sports, you can see that cycling is more demanding. Its like everyday job, like other people. Not like football, when you can train for 3-4 hours a day and then go to party. I think cycling should be more payable sport, than it is now!
get a life, no one going to read your fucking essay on the internet. And heres a tip: go outside of your basement enjoy the sun and life. PS: no one gives a fuck.
