How?? he had Livingston and Klodden pacing him up the Col's in 01 and Lance still blew him away....."the look" on the lower slopes of Alpe D'Huez is my 2nd favorite moment of tour history...the 1st being Lance getting up off the floor to put them all to bed on Luz Ardiden in 03.
It was a magnificent effort but this was 1 great day against Lance...Lance had many great days against Jan Ullrich.....I feel a little for JU if he'd been around in another era he'd have won multiple TDF's.....he just came up short against LA when it really mattered.

Taking nothing away from Jan, truly amazing day. But I have always thought of this as an incredible day for Lance. Many riders would have blown and lost 3, 4 minutes. Most would have not been able to come back after that level of heat exhaustion. Again taking nothing away from Jan. The German with a "diesel engine" was truly a great, great cyclist! Any other time in history he would have won 4 or 5 more Tours.
nie wieder wird einer fahren wie jan ullrich!
without doping winner of the tour 96-2006 JAN Ullrich, maybe more years, greatest cyclist i have ever seen, pure talent
i have cried tears of joy the hole time trial. one of the best moments of my life. jan ullrich was the best rider i have ever seen on a bike. genius!!!

Is it just a coincidence that the only year Jan seriously challenged Armstrong was the year he wasn't riding for Telekom/T-Mobile? Most of their teams were built around leading out Erik Zabel in the sprints.

@KIMI1428 It's difficult to say who deserved to win it, 3 drivers within 3 minutes. Crazy! Taking into account that Tyler Hamilton drove this tour with a broken shoulder you can say a fourth driver who also could have deserved it. Best Tour ever, I agree about that!
Funny to think that this was Ullrich's only stage win in LA's seven years of tour domination (five of which Ullrich rode in). Many second place finishes though.

@devidia Unfortunately for us Ullrich fans, he never ever reached his 1997 Tour de France form.
