    The team Telekom Pinarello racing bike from 1998 is in pristine original condition. Jan Ullrich himself says that he associates it with both the toughest training sessions and the most historic races of his career. All components, including the handlebar tape, Continental tires, Campagnolo Record Titanium groupset and the prominent Telekom paintwork, are original.

    A Hidden Secret: The Sigma Bike Computer

    A little secret built into this iconic bike? The Sigma bike computer fitted: Ullrich said he was curious to see how many annual kilometers were recorded on the bike computer. "I hope something over 40,000 km," Jan said with a wink. May the highest bidder prove him right or wrong!

    Supporting the Next Generation of Cyclists

    Jan Ullrich was intent on underlining that, "It is a matter close to my heart to support the next generation of cyclists. With this auction, I want to give young talents the chance to realize their dreams and further promote the sport that I love so much," he told buycycle in an interview in his museum in Bad Dürrheim.
