Jan Schaffrath will be a Directeur Sportif with Team T-Mobile for the 2007 season, it was announced the day after the revelation that his contract as DS with Team Milram was dissolved. He left Milram for "personal reasons," the team explained in a statement.
The 35-year-old rode for T-Mobile from 1998 to 2005, when he left to join his friend Erik Zabel at the new Milram team. Schaffrath is said to have participated in the T-Mobile's team meeting earlier this week in Lugano but T-Mobile refused to comment on the claim.
