Sad day for cycling as Ulrich quits

ulrich.jpgJust saw the news over on BBC that Jan Ulrich, 1997 TdF winner and 5 time runner up, has announced his retirement from cycling.

I think it’s a sad day for cycling, he’s lived under the shadow of Lance and I was looking forward to see him give a good account of himself this year after being “linked” to a doping scandal just before the kick-off of last years race.

Ulrich raced 8 times in the TdF and was never outside the top 4 – an achievement any cyclist would be proud of.
