Schleicher plans to stay put

Women's road world champion Regina Schleicher hopes to stay with her current team, Equipe Nürnberger, until she ends her career. "I have found the right team, which really supports me," she told the German press agency DPA. Between 1999 and 2004, Schleicher changed team four times, but now has a contract with Nürnberger through 2007. "If it goes well, I would like to continue with the Equipe until the Olympic games in Peking. Then I'll call it a day," said the 31-year-old.
