Ullrich confirms Giro participation

Jan Ullrich (T-Mobile) has confirmed that he will be taking part in this year's Giro d'Italia, but only as preparation for the Tour de France. On T-Mobile's website, Ullrich is quoted as saying, "I'll be testing my legs on a few stages. I will not be concentrating on the GC however."

Ullrich has just finished a block of training in Tuscany, and is almost ready to start racing again in the Circuit de la Sarthe. "I started training in November already, so I've done more than in other years," he said.
