"No risks" in Totschnig's final preparations

Georg Totschnig and several Gerolsteiner teammates are making their final preparations for the Tour de France in the ski resort town of St. Moritz, Switzerland, but they're not mixing in with the high society there. "I'm not taking any risks," said Totschnig, and Directeur Sportif Christian Henn supported his rider, saying, "Georg knows what it best for him."

Totschnig will be co-captain at the Tour de France, along with Levi Leipheimer. The team will ride for both, and "we'll see how things develop," according to Henn.

The Austrian's contract expires at the end of the season - will it be his last Tour for Gerolsteiner? "I'm leaving all my options open," he said, and Henn added, "We would be glad to give him another chance." Discussions are expected to be held during the Tour.
