Ullrich 2nd at Tour of Germany prologue
Jan Ullrich showed very good form Monday, finishing second to Gerolsteiner's Michael Rich in the Tour of Germany's opening time trial. Third on the day was Gerolsteiner's Uwe Peschel.
"I don’t know why people are so worried," Ullrich told the assembled media. "All I did was not start a couple of races because they were too early in the season. I’m not worried at all. I’m here at the Tour of Germany to test myself, but not to win."
Ullrich is 30 seconds ahead of Jens Voigt, who finished 2nd to Lance Armstrong in the Tour de Georgia last month, and who must be considered the early favorite for the overall because of the strength his CSC team has shown this year.
