T-Mobile has made two changes to its roster for Paris-Roubaix. Lorenzo Bernucci and Sergey Ivanov will be replaced by Andre Korff and Bas Giling. Bernucci is suffering from leg bruises suffered in a fall in the Ronde van Vlaanderen, "which makes his start in the 'Hell of the North' with its more than 50 kilometres of cobblestones impossible, despite intensive medical care," the team said. Korff, who rode the RvV in place of Stefan Wesemann, is currently riding the Circuit de la Sarthe.
Ivanov will now concentrate on his preparations for the Amstel Gold Race. In P-R he will be replaced by Bas Giling, who in 2004 was second in the U-23 edition of the race.
