Christian Werner is retiring from professional cycling after the T-Mobile Team did not offer him a new contract and he was not able to find another team. According to the Wiesbadener Tagblatt, Werner, 26, said, "The decision is made. As of the middle of last week I had not received an offer." He did receive offers form "second-class" teams, but did not consider them. "I won't go down (out of the ProTour). Either I ride professionally first class or I don't ride."
At least Werner doesn't have to worry about finding work. He will start working for his family's trucking firm, doing office work and "occasionally driving a truck."
Werner had been with Telekom/T-Mobile since 2003. His best results were a fifth place finish overall in the 2004 Friedensfahrt (Peace Race) and fourth overall in the Rehinland-Pfalz Rundfahrt that same year.
