Klier wants Wevelgem

After taking second spot on the podium at the Tour of Flanders on Sunday, T-Mobile's Andreas Klier is looking to repeat his 2003 victory in Gent Wevelgem tomorrow. "For me to triumph once more at Gent-Wevelgem would be the icing on the cake. I feel very well," said Klier.

Klier will head T-Mobile's team of Classics specialists, though Steffen Wesemann will be absent after dropping out of Flanders with a stomach problem. The team hopes he will be sufficiently recovered to ride the next big challenge, Sunday's Paris-Roubaix. Wesemann is replaced by Bram Schmitz who has recovered fro the injuries he sustained in a crash at the Dreidaagse van De Panne, while Stephan Schreck will also skip Gent-Wevelgem to line up alongside Jan Ullrich at the Circuit de la Sarthe in France.
