Updates. Time for the wrong sorts of trial for Ulle.

BERLIN (AFP) — Former top cyclist Jan Ullrich will go before a Swiss judge on charges of drunk driving dating from May 2014 when he caused an collision in which two people were injured.

"It’s inexcusable to have driven in the state I was in. It was a terrible mistake, and I deeply regret it,” said Germany’s Ullrich, the 1997 Tour de France winner.

Ullrich, 41, risks a fine and jail sentence of up to three years if found guilty.
His car raced through an intersection and hit a parked car before skidding and hitting another car head-on in the region of Thurgovie.

I remember seeing Jan in the now defunct Commonwealth Bank Cycle Classic last century - before he broke onto the world stage. From memory he helped Jens Voigt to a race win - feel free to correct me. :D

Ulle :)
Alberto Contador=Legend!

Nibali becomes only the 6th winner of all 3 GTS (2014)!
Nibali joins Gimondi, Merckx and Hinault as only the 4th man to win all 3 GTS and 2 different Monuments (2018). A throwback rider in this age of specialization. Bravo!

Is this race fixed like other criteriums? Anyway, It is great to see him and Freire in good shape. (Btw, I'd love to see Freire in Vitalicio Seguros jersey)

For those of you who speak German.
A new and pretty interesting interview by Jan.
Especially one point is very interesting. True Ullrich followers no this, but to the rest it might be a bit surprisng.
In this interview he explains that his biggest challenge was to avoid underweight. That was his biggest challenge for him in GTs. When he fell below a certain weight he simply had no power anymore. That was particularly a problem in the 98 tour. The day he cracked on the Galinier was the only time in his pro career he fell below 70 kilos.
Makes you wonder how todays skeleton GT riders, who are much skinnier than Ullrich ever was, can keep their power over 3 weeeks while being utra light.

Because they are not big by nature. Not really a mystery,

But thanks. Ullrich, unlike ie. Armstrong and Riis, always struck me as a very sympathetic guy, and this interview only adds to that.

"Still has it"
I thought you meant his TdF 'victory'.

I read it all, that was a great interview. Getting pretty nostalgic, I have always loved Der Kaiser, such a humble and down to earth guy.

Man, I would ride with Ulle any day. I talked to him a couple of times and he seemed solid despite the bad old days.
