Schumacher: "I don't have any reason to hide"

After two years in the "minor leagues," Stefan Schumacher is happy to be back in the "majors" with Pro Tour Team Gerolsteiner. "I have been a pro for four years, and won three stage races last year," he says. "I don't see any reason to hide myself."

Sports director Christian Henn is happy to have him on the team, too. "Stefan has talent, bite and a lot of substance, he will be able to adapt to the higher level of a ProTour team."

He is facing a full racing program this spring: Milan-San Remo, Paris-Roubaix, Amstel Gold Race, Fleche Wallonne, and Liege-Bastogne-Liege, all leading up to his season highlight: the Giro d'Italia. Schumacher tested positive last year for cathine (norpseudoephedrine) in the Rheinland-Pfalz Rundfahrt, but was eventually acquitted of all charges.
