It's a tough one today for the German riders – after all, the Tour de France is not the only major sporting event going on right now! Even as we speak (or write?), Germany is fighting against Argentina in the World Cup.
Saxo Bank's Jens Voigt will keep an eye on the game, except for those 10 minutes or so he is out on his bike. “Of course we all follow the World Cup, after all we are sports fans. But when you are on the starting ramp, you forget everything else.”
Milram's Linus Gerdemann has asked to be kept informed of how the game is going up until a few minutes before he ride. He is pessimistic though, seeing a win for Argentina.
(And, yes, we do know the score, and no, we won't tell you. But another goal was just scored!)
