Fabian Wegmann (Gerolsteiner) is counting the days until the start of the 2007 Tour de France. On his website, www.fabianwegmann.com, he writes that it would be "great if someone from our team could wear the German championships jersey during the Tour." While he thinks the team has a chance, he also points out that last year's race showed what can happen at the end.

Wegmann has prepared for the national title race and the Tour by spending a few days training at the Berninapass (near St. Moritz) with fellow teammates Markus Fothen and Heinrich Haussler. The threesome stayed in a Hotel near the top.

Wegmann wrote that his form is good and that only a good result is missing. He hopes to be better than last year because then "I would be on the podium."

After the race on Sunday the Gerolsteiner rider will spend a brief moment in his hometown of Münster before heading back to his adopted home in Freiburg. After the last training session on Tuesday he'll be flying to London on Wednesday.

Wegmann is a bit nervous before the start, but hopes that the nervousness will translate into a successful Tour.

Like last year the German will publish a diary [in German] from the Tour, which will appear on his website as well as the regional daily paper Badische Zeitung.
