DELIUS KLASING Book Ulle | Jan Ullrich Story of a Tragic Hero
Almost overnight, Jan Ullrich went from being the nation's darling to being a whipping boy. He was only representative of what had gone wrong in cycling for a long time. Sebastian Moll takes a different look at the tragic biography of an athlete. He analyzes Ullrich's career in a benevolent and appreciative manner and thus awakens an understanding of the ups and downs of a top athlete whose unique talent was both a blessing and a curse.
He was the first and only German to win the Tour de France in 1997 and won the hearts of cycling fans with Team Telekom. His gripping duels with Lance Armstrong and Marco Pantani captivated millions on the TV screens. But then: doping scandal, career end, alcohol and drug failures. Jan Ullrich's crash is one of the most tragic in sports history. How could it come to this?
25 years after the legendary Tour de France victory, Sebastian Moll tries to answer this question. As a cycling journalist, he accompanied Jan Ullrich's career from the start and in this book looks back on the rise and fall of the top athlete. He takes a critical look at the entire system of cycling and classifies the era of Armstrong, Ullrich and their contemporaries in a way that has not happened before.
