Rudy Pevenage told SID Ullrich couldn't compete in Sunday's road race.

"He will not compete," Ullrich's adviser, Rudy Pevenage, told German sports news agency SID. "It's impossible. He is too weak."

Also today, Ullrich was awarded 1.6 million euros in compensation due him from his contract with the Coast team, which collapsed midseason, triggering the sudden creation of Team Bianchi, for whom Ullrich rode in the 2003 Tour.
