German squad Gerolsteiner has decided on its nine riders who will contest the upcoming Tour de France. Markus Fothen and Bernhard Kohl will be the team's main men for the general classification while Robert Förster will look to mix it up in the sprint finishes. They will be supported by Sven Krauss, Sebastian Lang, Ronny Scholz, Stefan Schumacher, Fabian Wegmann and Oliver Zaugg.
The final selection was put together by Team Manager Hans-Michael Holczer and Directeur Sportif Christian Henn, who said: "We tried to keep in mind that we will probably have to keep an eye on Markus Fothen and Bernhard Kohl in the overall ranking, and that there are some difficult stages in the final week. But we still want to take a sprinter along in Robert Förster, because we want to be involved in the sprints, too."
