In reading about Jan Ullrich's crash into the T-Mobile team car, I hadn't heard that Jan wasn't wearing a helmet when he crashed. Analysts on OLN reported that fact early in this morning's Stage 1 Pre-race Show. How he went through the rear liftgate glass without being seriously injured is a mystery to me.
We hope that Jan Ullrich is still able to compete successfully in this year's Tour de France. However, I have to point out that anyone riding their bike without a helmet is taking a severe risk. Lance Armstrong was wearing his helmet when he crashed a few days ago and it probably saved him from a serious head injury.
