Gerdemann position clarification

Cyclingnews apologises to Linus Gerdemann for misrepresenting his views on Lance Armstrong's return to the peloton in a feature article on Armstrong yesterday.

Gerdemann said in a statement to Cyclingnews: "At the Team Milram press conference, I was asked whether I found Lance Armstrong's comeback good. I said that on the one hand it would surely draw more attention to cycling. On the other hand, in connection with the German media coverage, Lance Armstrong is virtually always connected to doping. I did not say anything about the riders of Lance's generation and certainly did not draw any conclusions about them."
