Kirchen to spearhead T-Mobile in Critérium International

Kim Kirchen will lead the T-Mobile Team in the 78th edition of the two-day Critérium International (2.HC) in the French Ardennes this weekend.

Kirchen returns to competition after a two and a half-week break - back pain forced him to climb off his bike and into the team car during stage three of Paris-Nice. The Luxembourger has been back in intensive training in the last few days, however, and hopes to rediscover the good form that saw him place second behind Paolo Bettini at the GP di Lugano in late February.
