Linus Gerdemann may well be riding for Team Columbia again next year. There had been discussions with Team Milram that would let him break his contract and join the German team, but apparently the talks have not come to a conclusion. Gerdemann's contract with Columbia runs through 2009.

"I assume that he will ride for us next year," Columbia team manager Bob Stapleton told the sid news agency. "It depends on Milram as to whether there will be more talks. There is always the chance for a transfer."

The transfer is said to involve the buying out of Gerdemann's contract, and apparently the sum involved is the breaking point in the negotiations.(SW)
