Gerolsteiner's Hans-Michael Holczer is confident and optimistic about the future of his team. Gerolsteiner Brunnen Gmbh & Co. announced in September that it would stop its sponsorship of the team after 10 years.
“We are conducting talks on three levels,” he told Cyclingnews Monday evening. “First, on the business-to-business area through my personal contacts, then with the help of the sports management firm Sport Five in their area, and last but not least, we are talking with an investor about his taking over the majority of my company.”
Holczer believes he will know in eight weeks what the future holds for his team. “I think this is a good sign, that I have too much to do – and in the next eight weeks we will know what will happen,” he concluded.
