19 year old German sprinter Gerald Ciolek will probably ride for T-Mobile next year, according to a DPA report. Ciolek, who surprised many to become German champion last year, current rides for Wiesenhof.
"Unfortunately, we couldn't keep hold of him, even though it would definitely better if he stayed with us another year," said Wiesenhof team manager Raphael Schweda. "I think he is going to T-Mobile." T-Mobile has yet to confirm the signing, however.
Ciolek's season has been solid this year, with a second place in the Rund um den Henninger Turm and fifth in the Vattenfall Cyclassics in Hamburg.
