Former T-Mobile rider Rolf Aldag has retired from professional cycling, but he hasn't given up sports. He announced yesterday that he will run the marathon in Hamburg, Germany, on April 23. "A professional cyclist, who rides in about 100 races a year, ought to be able to come in with a time under 2 hours and 45 minutes, with a little training," said Aldag. He is currently running between 100 and 140 kilometers a week.
