Jan Ullrich appears to be riding himself back into shape as planned, with a 36th place 1:03 back in today's Giro Stage. Today's stage was the first real test for the climbers with an assault on the Monte delle Cesane. Ullrich was right there with all the favorites only fading a bit at the end. It looks to me that he is right on target for this year's TDF. Also, nice win by Rik Verbrugge today.
