Gerolsteiner satisfied

German team Gerolsteiner was satisfied with its Giro d'Italia, which saw Sven Krauss in the Intergiro jersey for a long time before finally losing it to Stefano Zanini, Robert Förster picking up several top three placings, and Markus Fothen finishing 12th overall in his first grand tour. Krauss also won a Piaggio scooter for spending the most time in breakaways.

"Frösi proved with another excellent third place that he belongs among the world's elite sprinters," commented team director Christian Henn. "Markus Fothen's 12th place in the overall classification and the outstanding achievement of Sven Krauss in the special categories show the strength and depth of our team."
