Gerolsteiner is concentrating on the mountains in the upcoming Tour de France, and is therefore sending Tour riders Georg Totschnig, Peter Wrolich, Ronny Scholz and Fabian Wegmann to altitude training in St. Moritz, Switzerland. The four are starting their training camp in the Swiss ski resort on Monday, June 19 and will remain there for nine days, thereby missing the German and Austrian national championships.
"I don't want to leave anything to chance," said Totschnig, who won a mountain stage in last year's Tour. "I want to prepare for the Tour as perfectly as possible." After the camp, the Gerolsteiner riders will travel directly to the start of the Grand Tour in Strasbourg.
