Robert, in case you missed it:

Jan Ullrich devrait prolonger avec Bianchi la semaine prochaine

BERLIN (AP) - Jan Ullrich, deuxième du Tour de France en juillet, devrait signer un nouveau contrat
de trois ans avec la formation Bianchi la semaine prochaine, a annoncé dimanche Rudi Pevenage le
"patron" de la formation italienne.

L'Allemand, convoité par quatre formations cyclistes, a demandé à la Bianchi de se renforcer,
pour lui permettre en 2004 de remporter une deuxième fois la Grande Boucle, après son premier
succès obtenu en 1997.

"Nous avons posé une limite à la Bianchi, et j'espère qu'elle en tiendra compte", a déclaré
Wolfgang Strohband, le manager d'Ullrich.

Selon le manager, Ullrich entend aussi remporter le Tour d'Italie l'an prochain et conserver son
titre olympique sur route lors des JO d'Athènes.

Bianchi espère obtenir l'aide d'un important parraineur à la fin du mois, qui lui permettrait de
satisfaire Ullrich en renforçant l'équipe.

Pevenage a démenti les rumeurs en provenance d'Allemagne annonçant que la Team Telekom
souhaiterait enrôler à nouveau Ullrich.

Ullrich avait remporté le Tour de France en 1997 avec Telekom. Il avait quitté l'équipe allemande
l'an dernier après avoir été suspendu pour dopage. AP

Why post this in French when Cyclingnews has most of the story in English, anyway? To sum, Pevenage
announced Ullrich will sign a 3-year contract with Bianchi next week. Germany has demanded (the
entire country?) that Bianchi support Ullrich to the utmost so he can repeat his 1997 victory. As
the subject line says, he will visit the Giro, the Tour and the Olympics. They hope to secure an
important rider at the end of the month in order to help him carry out his goals. Pevenage denied
that Telekom made a bid to reclaim Ullrich. (They must be content with Vinokourov, and
understandably so.)

Thanks; yeah, I had missed it. Here's a very French sentence I liked:

Close. Only two mistakes.

No way, he intends to WIN all three is what his manager said (who is not Pevenage btw).

That's also the way I understand it, I guess sometihng got lost in the translation. The French
version makes more sense. Why would Pevenage make it a point to announce that Ullrich will
participate in the TdF?

It has been a while since I last attempted to speak French. I can't seem to get anything right, can
I? I promise I'll collect my marbles one of these days...

Oh, I don't know. A couple of mistakes per posting is about par for rbr, so it seems you fit
right in. I think I average slightly higher than that, but I've developed a thickish skin.
Besides, I believe the President has declared a new standard: you can take a mulligan on up to 16
words per speech.

I do have the decency to spell everything correctly, at least in English. That must count for
something.

The President has declared a bunch of new standards, but that's neither here nor there.
