Andreas Klöden is not boycotting the press, according to Astana spokeswoman Corinne Druey. "Andreas has nothing against the German media and all other media in general. He only wishes to focus and to concentrate on his preparations for his big program of this summer," she said, referring to the Tour de France.
The dpa press agency had reported earlier that the German rider was boycotting the media until the Tour. "The conclusion of a boycott is only the idea of the dpa," Druey told Cyclingnews.
