It doesn't look like Jan Ullrich will be joining Tinkoff Credit Systems. "I don't think he's interested," team manager Omar Piscina told the Associated Press. "It's been more than a month since we've spoken. I'd say that was probably a clue."

On Monday, Ullrich said on his website that he was "in discussion with certain teams and certain sponsors."

"Ullrich's comments must be referring to other teams. He can't be talking about us given the length of time that has passed since our discussions," he said. "We've signed [Tyler] Hamilton and that'll probably be it."

Team spokesman Danilo Viganò added: "It's 99 percent sure that we won't be adding to our roster of 17 riders."
