Who will be riding for T-Mobile next season? Some big names will not be with the team next year - such as Jan Ullrich, Oscar Sevilla and Andreas Klöden - and rumours are rampant in Germany as to which current riders have and haven't been offered new contracts, as well as to who might be joining the team.
The mystery should all be explained Wednesday, when the team will hold a press conference at T-Mobile Headquarters in Bonn, Germany. The team says it will explain how its efforts to restore confidence in cycling are going, as well as "announce which riders are moving to the team and other details around the 2007 T-Mobile Team campaign."
One of those "new" riders may be a familiar name - Axel Merckx. He started his career with the then Team Telekom in 1993, before going to Motorola, Polti, Mapei, Domo and Davitamon, before riding this year for Phonak. At one stage, he was planning on retiring after this season, but then decided to continue on for one year. He had been negotiating with Unibet and CSC, but has now decided to go to T-Mobile.
