I don't want to start any unfounded rumors but I came across this stray comment about Jan Ullrich in a Daily Peloton report on the Tour of Qatar.

"Olympic road champion champion had already held two press conferences during the previous week. Ullrich came to Qatar with his partner, Gaby, in order to ride his first race of the season."

Who is Gaby? And what do they mean by "partner?" Also are there any openly gay pros? I dunno just curious.

It's one of those "Pat" names. Will the court please present some pictural evidence?

As if it matters, but Gaby is his girlfriend (perhaps fiance).

Gaby is his long time girl friend of at least 3 or 4 years. They have been together for quite some time. Last time i read one of his interviews they were not married. He said they were talking of having a child. Since, i read him refer to her as his wife when he talked of going on vacation with his friend Andreas Kloden and their wives. Talk about starting rumors!!!!!!!!!!
"partner" is silly.colker

pretty sure gaby is a feminine nickname in germany though. in the end, i couldn't care less if ulrich is gay. hetero or hates's none of my businness anyway.

The term "partner" is becoming more and more "hetero" used to reflect non-marital committed relationships.
