Gerolsteiner has concluded its three-day team meeting in Euskirchen, Germany. "It was a very good atmosphere," said Peter Wrolich. The new riders were introduced, and "There was a lot of interest in Bernhard Kohl. I'm glad that he is with us now, so that I won't be the only Austrian in the team after Totsch (Georg Totschnig) retired and Hasi (Rene Haselbacher) left us."
Wrolich further noted that he will probably follow a different schedule in the coming season, one which will most likely not include the Tour de France. "You have to prepare so exactly for this race, that you can forget the rest of the season. Until July, nothing matters but the Tour, then you ride through France for three weeks and after that your head is so empty you can't do anything. I want to concentrate again on my real strength, the one-day races, and plan more highlights for 2007."
