Ullrich confirms for Giro

BBC SPORT | Ullrich lines up Giro before Tour

Jan Ullrich will race at the Giro d'Italia in May, in preparation for a run at the 2006 Tour de France overall title.

Echoing Paris-Nice winner Floyd Landis, also tuning up in Italy, Ullrich said "I'm not looking at the general classification but I will be keen to test my legs on a few key stages."

The 1997 winner has 6 podium finishes, and is the current favorite to win the 2006 Tour. He will be (as usual) the last major contender to kick off his season, April 4th at the Circuit de la Sarthe.
