Lance Armstrong's biggest rival, Jan Ullrich, will not follow the American's comeback comeback to pro cycling. "At the moment I can't imagine that."

In an interview with the German tabloid Bild, when asked about Lance Armstrong's return to the peloton, Ullrich said with a laugh, "If he starts, then I ought to start again, too. But I haven't thought about that. You should never say never, though."

He added, "We have different history. He left with a win, I left with a disappointment. That still hurts. I wish him lots of luck."

Ullrich said that he would return to the Tour de France only to watch his son Max (one year old) ride. "But seriously, I would never force him into the sport. He must choose his own way. I have other plans. Plus I don't miss it. I am happy with my life."
