Andreas Klöden has decided to boycott the press in an effort to lessen the pressure of being a Tour de France favorite and to avoid doping discussions.

"Andreas won't speak with anyone from the press before the Tour. He wants to totally concentrate," Astana spokeswoman Corinne Druey told the dpa press agency. At the recent Bayern Rundfahrt, Klöden told journalists that he was tired of always being asked about doping.
