Ullrich out at Amstel

Eurosport | Ullrich gives up gold

Jan Ullrich will skip Sunday's Amstel Gold race, which he was scheduled to race. Eurosport has the best lead on this story:

German rider Jan Ullrich has struck his name from the start list of Sunday's Amstel Gold race, the fourth (of 10) races on the 2004 World Cup calendar. The 1997 Tour de France winner would "not have been competitive in this difficult race," T-Mobile team director Mario Kummer said Tuesday. Translation: Ullrich's too fat.

This is essentially the same story I posted on Monday morning, but without mention of Ullrich skipping Amstel Gold, and without that lead.
