What do cyclists do on their day off? Hold a race, of course. At least that's what Gerolsteiner's Sebastian Lang did. He meant to take a well-deserved break and ignore his bike, but he allowed himself into being talked into hosting the first "Tour de Kindergarten".
His former bike club, the RSC Turbine Erfurt, provided jerseys, water bottles and other prizes for the little kids, who rode a series of races around the kindergarten grounds, with (relatively) few crashes.
"The kids gave me a lot of pleasure, so it was worth it to get back on the bike on my free day," said Lang on www.seppels.net.
Oh, yes - the kindergarten teacher happens to be Lang's girlfriend.
