Klöden sick again

By Susan Westemeyer

Andreas Klöden is having a hard time getting started in his second season with Team Astana. He arrived at the team's USA training camp in Albuquerque, New Mexico, only to come down with a fever that kept him in bed several days. Then upon returning to Europe he discovered that his children were sick – and they promptly and politely shared it with dad.

The 32 year-old German is now in Mallorca, where he was supposed to ride the Volta a Mallorca. Instead, he will be staying in bed and probably not be able to race at all. He will remain on the Spanish island until flying over to the mainland for the Volta ao Algarve, February 20 to 24.
