by Susan Westemeyer

Team Gerolsteiner has signed a real live Gerolsteiner, Johannes Fröhlinger, who was born 21 years ago in Gerolstein, Germany. He has been a stagiaire for the team this year, finishing sixth in the 3-Länder Tour, and impressing Team Manger Hans-Michael Holczer. Holczer called the youngster "a strong climber with outstanding race instincts." Fröhlinger, who signed a two-year contract, previously rode for the U-23 French team FC Sarreguemines. He said, "I grew up with Gerolsteiner mineral water. Now I'm happy to represent my hometown in cycling."
