Gerhard Trampusch has confirmed his dismissal from Team Volksbank, saying "I received a registered letter with my dismissal today." He refused to comment on the grounds for the action, but told sportpress.at that "I cannot accept it."
The 28 year-old, whose contract ran through the end of the year, said that he was not planning to end his career. "I don't want to stop this way. I am motivated and will continue to fight, keep myself fit and see that I find another team for next year."
The Austrian Professional Continental team said yesterday that it was terminating Trampusch's contract because of his behaviour contrary to contract provisions.
