Klöden looking around

Is T-Mobile's Andreas Klöden looking to cut the cord and go off on his own, away from good friend and team captain Jan Ullrich? His contract with T-Mobile expires at the end of this season. "I have offers from three Pro Tour teams with promising sporting perspectives and the captain's role," he told the German dpa press agency. However, "none from my own team, which surprises me a little."

One of the team with which he is contact is Team Gerolsteiner, although team manager Hans-Michael Holczer denies that an offer has been made. "I have spoken with Klöden's manager Toni Rominger about several riders, including Andreas Klöden. All discussions are in a very, very preliminary stage right now," Holczer commented.
