Godefroot renounces

According to Belgian radio Sporza, the retired manager of T-Mobile Walter Godefroot has declined wanting to become the next national coach of the Belgian cycling federation. "I've heard all the time how José De Cauwer worked very hard, and I just can't live up to that at the moment," Godefroot said. "After 40 years, I've seen enough of the cycling sport. Of course, I will still be in contact with T-Mobile, if the team directors Mario Kummer and Olaf Ludwig ask me for my opinion."

Former national coach De Cauwer, who is currently incriminated in a court case, will be a part of the Davitamon-Lotto squad next season.
