Ullrich has threatened to leave Team coast if he is not paid in 2 weeks. According to
cyclingnews.com. I saw leave in one week if the UCI issue is not settled. Why should Jan stick
around and waste his season???

Why was he too stupid to accept Riis's offer?

He wasted last season with a team that was paying him. At least this way he'd have a good excuse.

Riis wanted to sign Ullrich and not the 6 or 7 person entourage that goes with him. Coast allowed
him to bring all these people along. I think he will only go as a last resort as it will be less
'comforatble' for him.. Stan Cox

Someone here pointed out the Jan has become a loser partly because of his yes-man entourage. He
needs someone that will kick his butt like Riis would.

This is true. Lefevere is so wrong working out a job for nurturing substitute-mum Pevenage,
just for Jan.

He's starting to remind me of Mike Tyson.

She doesn't look like the dominatrix type- more like a former Miss Berlin or something.

Lefevere is doing that? Lefevere has a good record of reviving wayward bike racers, maybe he can pay
Pevenage to stay home.

From velonews.com:

Pevenage said Ullrich comes as a package and that won't be cheap even in today's cycling climate.

"My mobile telephone has been on all the time and so far no team has called me to make an offer,"
Pevenage told Reuters. "The problem is that there is not much money in cycling at the moment and
there are five of us in Jan's entourage -- Jan, his training partner, me, his mechanic and his
masseur. That's a lot of people to find money for."

Sheesh. Pevenage has a sweet deal there, latched onto Jan like a suckerfish. So Jan can't go to a
real team because they'd have to pay Pevenage? What results has Rudy got Jan in the last four years?

BTW, VDB has made the New York Times,
http://www.nytimes.com/2003/03/09/sports/othersports/09BIKE.html

Sam Abt says

The last three years he was not so good," admitted his latest directeur sportif, the kindly and
patient Patrick Lefevere of the new Quick Step team in Belgium, who rescued Vandenbroucke for the
2002 season from a sulky exile with the Lampre team in Italy. ...

"He did it to himself," Lefevere said in an interview. He is kindly and patient only up
to a point.

Possibly the first time anyone has called Lefevere "kindly"?

Jan needs to get rid of the Klingons. What kind of fool demands an entourage AND allows one of the
members to handle negotiations? Talk about conflict of interests. I can just imagine Bjarne
calling Jan and have Rudy answer the phone. "Can I please speak directly to Jan?" "No, he is my
biker *****."

hmm, maybe it's because she's a blond german woman and reminds me too much of my mother that i get
those vibes from her.

but that aside, pretty girls can be tough, too (http://www.domkarin.com/gallery/mskarinvk.jpg)
