Andreas Klöden had "good news" out of Italy - after finishing the Tirreno-Adriatico time trial in second place, just one second off the winner Stefan Schumacher (Gerolsteiner), "I can say that it is going very well for me here."

Writing on his website, andreas-kloeden.com, he said that he "originally only came here to see where I stand now, and of course had hoped that it would be better than in the past two years. The training of the last weeks and months has been good for me."

But the Astana rider is also pleased with things off the road. "The team is a lot of fun. Everyone on the team is doing a great job and we harmonize together really well."
