Steffen Wesemann is apparently looking to end his career after the 2008 Olympic games in Peking. "I could imagine that after that is the end," he told the press agency dpa. Wesemann transferred to Continental Professional Team Wiesenhof-Felt this year after 13 years by Team Telekom/T-Mobile. "I feel well in my new team, there is a super atmosphere here," he said.

Looking back at his time at the German ProTour team, he said, "All in all it was a very good time, even I was often the 'fifth wheel' on the team as a classics rider." He added that he wanted "to ride fully motivated for another two years. And then I will definitely try to be in Peking."
