The warm, spring-like weather in Europe has disappeared - much to the distress of cyclists trying to train for the upcoming season. Peter Wrolich of Gerolsteiner is considering fleeing to the sun. "Since the weather here in Kärnten isn't really optimal right now, I have thought about flying with my family to Fuerteventura for ten days around New Year's," he wrote on his website, www.peterwrolich.at. "The training conditions there are surely better than at home, where there still isn't any snow. There's just not much to do here right now. In December I wanted to do a lot of cross-country skiing and long tours, but I couldn't."
Still, Wrolich is staying busy. The Austrian was on the snow one time, for a charity ski event. "Right now I'm spending a lot of time at the sport center in Althofen, together with Bernhard Kohl and Bernhard Eisel. And I also run about five times a week and ride a lot of mountain bike."
