After yesterday's opening road stage of the Volta a Catalunya, T-Mobile leader Jan Ullrich says he has good sensations in his legs, with he and his team leading the chase along with Phonak to bring back the early breakaway. "My legs were very strong today. I am using this race to get my legs into gear - and so far so good," said Ullrich on the team's website, t-mobile-team.com.

Directeur sportif was also happy with his team's performance: "The team did a good job today. We had eight riders at the front of the pack on the final climb, and we closed the gap to the break," he said. "It was a good showing."

31 year-old Ullrich finished the stage the same time as winner Enrico Gasparotto (Liquigas-Bianchi), and is currently lying 14th overall on the general classification, 14 seconds behind Miguel A.M. Perdiguero (Phonak).
