Jan Ullrich has revealed which races he will ride this year in the run-up to the Tour de France. The German, who won the Tour in 1997 and finished off the podium for the first time in 2004, will return to racing at the Circuit de la Sarthe (April 5-8) and will then ride the Vuelta Ciclista a Aragon (April 13-17) and the Volta a Catalunya (May 16-22).
Announcing the plan, Ullrich writes on his website, "I am seriously thinking about forgoing the Tour of Switzerland and starting instead in the Dauphiné Libéré, and the ProTour team time trial in the Netherlands (June 19) - that would be a good test for the Tour."
