Ludwig responds to Godefroot's criticism

By Susan Westemeyer

Olaf Ludwig, incoming T-Mobile Team manager, has responded to criticism from outgoing Team Manager Walter Godefroot, who said that he was not comfortable with the fact that "everything is focused on Jan Ullrich and will be even more so next season."

"I don't know exactly what Godefroot means with his criticism," Ludwig told German press agency dpa. "At the Tour, naturally everything turns around Ullrich. But of course we also have other goals for the season, which are overshadowed for the public by the overwhelming importance of the Tour."
