Ullrich: "A change of guard long overdue"

"A change of guard is long overdue," Ullrich told Germany's Men's Health magazine when asked about the odds of beating six-time Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong.

"If I look at the past, I think I could have often had a better result than I ended up having. I can't afford to squander any more chances. I don't want to look back in 10 years and see that I beat myself in the Tour de France in my best years because I did something wrong."
