Flashback: 2000 Tour de France

I found this blast from the past in my attic while looking for Christmas decorations.

This is a Tour de France – Team Telekom Special Edition from 2000.  It was developed specifically for the German market, hopeful that Jan Urlich would take his second Tour win.  Ironically, with Lance Armstrong stripped of all his Tour de France victories, Ulrich ends up top of the podium.  At least, he would if he weren’t also a convicted doper.

The desired podium from left to right:  Erik Zabel (Points Classifcation), Jan Ulirch (Maillot Jaune), some other Telekom rider, Udo Bölts, maybe.

These guys are still the box. Unopened.
