Jan Ullrich has the medical OK to ride the Giro d'Italia beginning next week. "His knee is okay. Jan can start in the Giro," team doctor Stefan Vogt told the Gazzetta dello Sport. Ullrich himself noted that he has no ambitions at the Italian race. "It it unrealistic to think that I could do well at the Giro," Der Kaiser said. "That would be impossible against the Italians, who are already in top form." But Ullrich paid respect to the race, saying, "I know that I will suffer at the Giro. But it is better to suffer because of a race than because of knee problems."
