Gerolsteiner's Rene Haselbacher has ended the Vuelta a España, dropping out after the 15th stage with an inflamed tendon. He considers the Vuelta to be a success for him and takes some credit for teammate Robert Förster's stage win on Sunday. "My form is good. Robert didn't have to ride in the wind today in the finale. I brought him perfectly in position and he only had to keep going. The team's happiness was of course huge over this first stage win in the Vuelta. Now I'm heading back home. I'll take it easy the next few days in order to heal my injury thoroughly. Then I'll start my final preparations for the WM in Salzburg." (www.haselbacher.com)
