Jan Ullrich with a strong comeback over mega-distance – finisher at Mallorca 312 in eleven hours

“It was a dream,” said Ullrich at the finish, where he willingly posed for numerous photos and selfies, and also signed many jerseys, helmets and T-shirts. The 47-year-old raved: “We started at half past six and when we were over the Puig [Major, mit 1445 Metern der höchste Insel-Berg; d.Red.] came, the sun came up – just fantastic. “

Jan praised the “perfect organization and the great route. Mallorca is simply a dream for cyclists, and not just for cyclists.” In one Interview on the eve of the race, Ullrich was delighted to be “back in the big cycling family, to see the old boys and the young champs.”

The German Dominic Aigner completed the entire island lap with 312 km as the fastest driver, he had already won the 312 km race in 2018. The winner of this distance was Nikky Alberts from the Netherlands, in 10: 29.33 hours.
