German racer Sabine Spitz will be going her own way this year. She has left Team Ghost International and hopes to start her own team, which will also be sponsored by bike manufacturer Ghost, and is currently holding discussions with an additional co-sponsor.

Her husband and manager, Ralf Schäuble, said on her website, hotzenwald.de/sabinepitz, that "We have seen over the past year that our priorities were too different from those of the team management. Our emphasis is very clearly on professional cycling with an optimal performance and environment. Team manager Jörg Scheiderbauer had other goals. We spoke about it and reached an agreement to part."

The 36 year-old is keeping her eye on Beijing, and is glad to keep on working with Ghost. "I am very happy that Ghost will continue to accompany me. The material is top and the right basis for a good Olympic year," she said.
