In this interview, Lance Armstrong was asked what he though of Jan Ullrich after facing off with him at Murcia. Lance's reply?
He goes on to add:
"But I think he looks better than he normally looks this time of year. There's no doubt that (Jan) is seven or eight kilos more than his Tour weight. He's been heavier other years. But Ullrich looks strong, is how he does look. I wouldn't say he looks fat. Jan always gets in shape for the Tour; he's always ready."
I think Lance is being diplomatic. Jan looks as if he's been living large this winter, so to speak.
