Ciolek on the move

Gerald Ciolek of Team High Road has been busy on the road this month. The 21 year-old German, who notched up seven wins this season, started out with a week on Majorca with his team-mates at an unofficial training camp, where the main topic of discussion was the loss of the title sponsor of the last 16 seasons - Deutsche Telekom/T-Mobile.

"We didn't immediately notice any big changes," he said on his website "We'll just have to wait and see what the future brings. I am trying not to let myself be affected by it all. It's not all that long until the season starts."

After the sun and warmth of Mallorca, Ciolek spent just one day at home before heading to the snow and cold of the Alps, for cross-country ski training. He intends to dedicate two weeks to this training, as a change from cycling, before heading home again to his family for Christmas. He won't stay long this time, either. Shortly after New Year he will head back to Majorca for three weeks of pre-season training.
