...in pro cycling terms.

Look at him. He's a porker! Hair looks ok...kinda going for the suave Italian look, I guess...


Lose some weight fatty!


everything was said in jest. I respect his determination to be the first to lose. '06 is your year Der Kaiser...but you gotta lose some weight first.

There's better:


Where's his jawline?! Where does the jaw end and neck begin?

Kloden looks almost emaciated next to Jan (Kloden is to the right of the photo)

I still love you Ullrich...just lose some weight first.

"Hey guys! I'm so fat that my eyes have swollen shut."


But seriously folks, I'm in no way disrespecting Ullrich. He's still a great rider, especially under Pevenage, and I'm confident he'll be in game shape by July...watching the Tour on TV!!!

I was about to post the same thing,

What does that guy eat, holy cow.

Remember Bob Roll with the Jan accent during the tdf commentary poking fun at his love for pies :D :D

Well at least we know he's not starving himself to fitness.

Total rubish. He was 170 lbs when he left S. Africa two weeks ago. He's big, not fat. Nobody calls Magnus fat, do they?

I think he's ok for this time of year. He looks a little sleepy, but not too fat.
I think the weight thing is is biggest challenge, but maybe that's also why he is so
strong when he's in shape.
I can definitely relate.

Go to the T-Mob home site & look at the newest pix. His face is fleshy, but the body looks okay. The new do doesn't help make his face look any thinner. Also, the scar from the windshield collision is still very prominent.

T-Mob team presentation

Go to the Archive section to find pictures of Ullrich after last year's TdF. He looks almost emaciated in comparison.

More than anything...he looks rested. Like he's been sleeping for a month. Time to wake up that body and put some miles in. Just don't get sick.
Actually looks a little stoned...maybe that's his vice. Getting the munchies. ;)

I thought his daughter was born around the time of the '03 Tour? I think he's happy because Goedefroot is out of the picture and Pevenage is the man again. That and a tummy full of strudel...sorry, couldn't resist!

Big Bagstedt doesn't look fat cuz he's 6'5", 195-200 lbs. That weight spread over that huge body definitely doesnt make him look fat.

In comparison, Ullrich is around 6' but weighs a little less than 170lbs, which makes him look a tad chubby. Of course, his race weight in July is much less.

It's the weight to height ratio that makes em look...fat.

When were those photos taken?

...'Cause the team presentation yesterday shows a much leaner than the usual Jan in Winter:

The business department:

Nope, he looks like he's in decent shape. There's always been something admirable about Jan, but I can't quite put my finger on it. He just seems like a quiet, solid character.

I got those photos from cyclingnews yesterday. The photos were at Majorca during the team "training" camp, which may be before the team presentation.


On a side note: I think it's admirable of T-Mobile to present the women and men together as one team, rather than "teams".

Thus, I will continue using their cell phone service.


Now, all I need is their bike.

Typo, doh!

Yup. He looks great for this time of year--aside from that hobbit doo. You cannot go by Ullrich's face. It is roundish and he doesn't get that hollowed cheek look unless he is really cut. His legs are lean and that says a lot.
