Will Jan Ullrich win 5 T'sDF?Frith

He already has 1 under his belt. He is in great form and has managed to expose king Lance as a human being and this after a year off from racing. He has a chance to win his 2nd TDF this year although Lance did alot today to make sure that doesn't happen. He seems to have put all the immature stuff behind him and may be ready to put in the training time and dedication it takes. At 29 Y.O. is it concievable that JU has 4 wins in him yet? regardless of the final out come this year?
Perhaps he can win 2.fcebedo

Don't get too far ahead of the game. How can you even fathom 5 when there are so many challenges to get to #2?

He finally has his own teamAlpedhuez55

Despite being a threat for the GC, Telecom seemed more interested in winning the Green Jersey for Zabel. Bianchi is Jan's team. THere was a power struggle there. Now he cannot question his support and can ride his own race.

first he has to win 2,3 & 4velocity

He needs to assemble a stronger supporting cast as well.
Don't think it's possible...Crash

But I'd love to see at least two more. I'm so glad that Jan has his game back together. Every great champion (Lance) needs a great challenger (Jan) to make him be his best. Honestly I thought the Tour was a little boring (at least the GC) last year without him.
