Luttenberger still trying to make up his mind

By Susan Westemeyer

Peter Luttenberger didn't get a new contract from Team CSC for 2007, and he is still trying to decide what he will do for the coming year. If he gets an offer that fulfils his financial and athletic interests, "then I will continue to ride. If not, then I wouldn't have any problem with giving it up," he told the APA press agency.

The Austrian rider says that he has offers from various teams, but nothing concrete. He has had no contact with the Austrian team Volksbank. "And things would have to change with other teams. They have to be prepared to make certain things a bit bigger," he said. "If a team has a big name rider, they will be invited to better races, and will therefore have a higher income from start money and paid expenses."
