When your captain is wearing the leader's jersey, your team's biggest problem is controlling the pace, stopping breakaway groups and so on, right? Wrong, at least for T-Mobile Team yesterday. In his online diary, Jan Ullrich cites come of the "other" problems. Yesterday [Stage 4] started out with a long transfer from St. Anton to Vauduz, in Liechtenstein, and apparently everybody was on the road at the same time. "In the beginning it went quite fast, but soon we were crawling at snail pace on clogged roads up to Liechtenstein. Just 20 minutes to the start of the race, our bus arrived. That was pretty close! Fortunately, Mario Kummer and the mechanics had prepared everything perfectly, so we got up on our bikes coming straight from the bus."
