Stefan Wesemann got the news last week that he was definitely not going to be offered a new contract with Team T-Mobile, but it looks like he has a new contract in sight for next season. The Aargauer Zeitung reports that Wesemann is on the verge of signing with the Professional Team Wiesenhof. "I want to ride in Gippingen and the Tour de Suisse," says Wesemann, who hopes that Wiesenhof will receive a wild card invitation to the latter.
Wesemann rode the Championship of Zürich for T-Mobile, but it was a quickly over for him. In the second round of the course, he suffered an "irreparable defect" on one shoe, which eventually forced him out of the race. In addition, in light of the fact that his team had not offered him a contract for the coming season, his motivation "wasn't all that great, anyway."
