Ullrich at 75 kilos, three to go

Procycling | Ullrich carrying three kilos of excess

There's one remaining obstacle for Jan Ullrich, who is obviously strong and fit after a time trial victory at the Giro d'Italia last month.

He's about 3 kilograms, or 6.6 pounds, above what he considers his ideal riding weight of 72 kilos, with less than 3 weeks to the Tour. We should get an idea of the effect of the extra weight starting tomorrow, as the road turns up at the Tour de Suisse.
