T-Mobile's Stephan Schreck has a virus infection that has knocked him out of the early part of the season. In a TV interview in Erfurt, Germany on Tuesday, he said that he has been unable to train for four weeks and has given up on the spring season. He hopes to be back in action this summer.
T-Mobile spokesman Stefan Wagner told Cyclingnews that Schreck "is being handled by our medical team in Freiburg. He will wait until all parameters are normal again and will then start up again with training and racing".
