Andreas Klöden took advantage of the off-season to "recharge my batteries to 100 percent and spend time with my family." But the quiet time is over for the slender T-Mobile rider, who will be riding for Team Astaná in the coming season as he wrote on his website, www.andreas-kloeden.com.
"Now that I have recovered well, I have been training again since the beginning of November-four or five days a week on the bike, and also doing something for the whole body." He will be staying near his home in Switzerland, at least for the time being. "After the past two years, I want to train quietly and therefore won't be flying south, but will stay home. But possibly, I will go to a training camp not to far away."
