Neo-pro Klostergaard ready to learn

Kasper Klostergaard, who started his career at Danish Team CSC last year as stagiaire, will be one of the neo-professionals in the European peloton this upcoming season. Having signed a one-year contract with Bjarne Riis, the Danish youngster is looking forward to prove his worth in 2006, but he knows that his ambitions have to remain humble at this point.

"I would like to learn as much as possible [during 2006]," the 22 year-old said. "My ambition is to do well and not 'fall through'. If I can be up front a couple of times during the season, I would consider my first year as a professional rider a success." Klostergaard will be aiming to earn a spot on the Danish national team again for the 2006 World Championships in Salzburg, Austria. "I've tried it four times now and it's always special to be a part of. Everything is bigger, and I've always been very proud of being selected," he continued.
