Ullrich passes the test

It was no surprise that the 36 kilometre long time trial around Weinfelden was one of the stages Jan Ullrich (T-mobile) had in mind when he in pre-race interviews said that he intended to put himself to the test during Tour de Suisse. A fresh looking Jan Ullrich, riding his relatively new Giant TT machine, won the challenging time trial ahead of Francaise des Jeux's Bradley McGee and Quick.Step's Michael Rogers, thereby taking over the leader's jersey from Bernhard Eisel's shoulders. Yesterday's surprise winner Eisel finished 79th, 3'42 down on the winner.
