[T]he excitement started when Ullrich unexpectedly attacked on Col de Tourmalet. He created a gap, and it looked liked the moment of truth had come from Lance, but at the summit, they were back in one group again.
"I didn't respond to his attack immediately, because I felt it was not the best time and place to do that. We had a long and hard descent ahead of us, and then there was still Luz Ardiden. I thought it would be better to establish a rhythm, and let him get five or ten seconds, and then keep him there like if we were doing two separate time trials or something. I actually got very close to him, but he just kept powering up that mountain, and I thought. 'Well, if you are gonna keep riding like that, you can go ahead and win this race, because I just cannot do that.' But obviously, it was a bit too early to ride like that."
