Wow, Ullrich looks very fit (no fat
) and he was very strong in today's time trail (39km) in the Tour of Switzerland, finishing just a bit faster than the two Aussies McGee and Rogers:
1 Jan Ullrich TMO 44'06"
2 Bradley McGee FDJ +14"
3 Michael Rogers QST +17"
4 Fabian Cancellara FAS +39"
5 Serhiy Honchar DOM +40"
I guess he was right when he said he feels better than last year in this time of the year.
Basso is not competing by the way. He has taken some time off after the Tour of Italy last month. I've no clue about his form.
