Only 24 hours after winning the Christmas Prize race in Dortmund, T-Mobile's Rolf Aldag received an even better Christmas present: a daughter. His wife Eva delivered the couple's first child, Maddy, in Ahlen, Germany, on Tuesday, December 27. The baby measured 52 cm and weighed 3000 grams.
"Thank goodness it's a girl," said Aldag. "That means I won't have to take her to cycling races every weekend in the future." (Has Aldag never heard of women's cycling?) Maddy Aldag is the second T-Mobile Christmas baby, as Finn Oscar Schreck was born the previous week.
