Nordmilch refuses to continue

The end of Team Milram is beginning to look ceratin after Nordmilch AG said it will not continue its sponsorship.  Team manger Gerry van Gerwen had asked the dairy product company to remain for another year.

“They told me again, 'We will not make any futher sponsorship',” van Gerwen told the German news agency dpa on Tuesday. 

The Dutchman is not ready to give up all hope , though.  “I cannot imagine that I won't have a team in 2011,” he said, adding that he is still geting telephone inquiries about the team's future.

Meanwhile, the riders have started looking for teams for the coming season.  Linus Gerdemann said that he is holding talks with other teams.  Sprinter Gerald Ciolek is said to have an offer from his former team HTC-Columbia, which he called an “interesting alternative.”
