Klöden looking forward to 2007 Tour

by Susan Westemeyer

Andreas Klöden has big plans for the Tour de France 2007. "I won't say that I want to win it, but in any case I want to confirm my performance from this year," he told the German press agency dpa. Atthe question of who will be the captain on the Astana team, Klöden replied, "I believe that Alexander Vinokourov, Andrej Kaschetschkin and I will be handled equally. It is not so important as to who is actually captain." Klöden is joining Astana after leaving Team T-Mobile. "T-Mobile won't be favoured in the Tour next year, for me. I think they will concentrate on other races."
