Gerolsteiner looking for stage places in Romandie

Team Gerolsteiner's goal in the upcoming Tour de Romandie is to do well in the individual stages. Directeur sportif Raimund Dietzen has said he doesn't want to pressure his riders on GC. "Most of them are still building up their form. It's a form test for Georg Totschnig, too," he said.

But if something good happens, Dietzen is of course willing to take it. "When along with good stage results we happen to get a forward place in the GC, then that is naturally even better and a chance that we will want to use."

The team is sending three Swiss riders to the Swiss race: Beat and Markus Zberg and Sven Montgomery. Beat Zberg has won a stage in the race in 1995 and finished third in 1997 and second in 1999. Montgomery was sixth overall in 2001 and won the mountain jersey in 2004.

The full Gerolsteiner line-up for the Tour de Romandie will be: Torsten Hiekmann, Sebastian Lang, Sven Montgomery, Ronny Scholz, Georg Totschnig, Beat Zberg and Markus Zberg.
