Schmidt leaving Gerolsteiner

Torsten Schmidt, 33, has announced that he is leaving Team Gerolsteiner at the end of the year, and is looking to become captain in a smaller team. "My time at Gerolsteiner was good and I had a lot of positive moments. Supporting captains like Rebellin or Hondo gives lots of satisfaction," he said. "I have reached a point in my career where I have to ask if I want to ride out my career as a helper, or whether I can use my experience and class to really 'go for it' one more time."

Radsport-news.com reports that Schmidt has an offer from the Wiesenhof-Akud Team.
