Gerdemann in support for Rogers

Linus Gerdemann of T-Mobile is getting ready to tackle his first Tour de France.

He sees himself mostly in support for the team and especially Australian Michael Rogers, who has chances of getting onto the podium in Paris. The German told radsport-aktiv that his preparation went well and "we'll see what the Tour de Suisse did for my condition."

His plan to ride strongly in the German Championships didn't quite pan out. "The decisive group was established after five kilometres, so it wasn't a real test for me."

He revealed that his favourites to take the crown in Paris are Klöden, Leipheimer, Valverde and Vinokourov.
