With a last mountain stage between Pau and Bayonne on Wednesday after the rest day, Vinokourov said he would try again.
"I'm not desperate and I will try to keep attacking like I've done since the start," he said.
But the Telekom leader, silver-medalist behind Ullrich in the road race at the Sydney Olympics, confessed that the Tour now looks like a race between his former teammate and four-time champion Armstrong.
"I wish good luck to Jan, who is a very close friend of mine," he said.
"He's very strong right now and probably at his very best ever. As for Armstrong, he's not too far from his best either now."
