You looked too far into the future. You saw Jan Ullrich's son.

I'm in the minority, but I think Ulrich is going to win. Mind you, as a good yankee I am pulling for Armstrong. I expect Ulrich to come on stronger than people think.

Oh yeah! I can't wait. Two more days...

taking the gold in the Men's Road Race, and leaving Lance with the bronze medal. However...

1) That's a 1-day race, not a three-week stage race

2) I don't recall there being many climbs on that course--and that's Armstrong's specialty

So if Jan took that victory, spent the last several months building on that... he *could* be a threat.

But I tend to side with Duane Gran on this one. I don't think Jan will win... but he'll give us a few close calls. Might even get the yellow jersey a day or two.

It's all about the climbs...

Here's a photo of Jan taken the day before the Tour prologue:

He may not win, but he's starting in better shape this year.
