BERNARD HINAULT’S (Pre-Tour) CALL: “This is the last chance Tour for Jan Ullrich: either he wins this year and is able to re-launch his career, or he’ll fail once again, which at 32 years of age would prove fatal. He needs to tell himself that replacements are waiting in the wings! I hope that his new team director Olaf Ludwig will help him come up with some good solutions. Unless management also grows weary and decides to go with Andreas Klöden.”
