T-Mobile opts for youth and experience

T-Mobile director Brian Holm has picked a mix of youth and experience in the eight-man team to ride the UCI category 2.1 Sachsen-Tour, which starts in Dresden tomorrow and finishes on July 23. Olaf Pollack and André Greipel will go for sprint wins, supported by André Korff.

23-year-old Linus Gerdemann, seventh in this year's Tour de Suisse, is T-Mobile's man for the GC as are Kim Kirchen and Italian Lorenzo Bernucci. The experienced Italian Daniele Nardello and Stephan Schreck will make up the remaining places. Schreck took the opener at the 2004 Sachsen-Tour and remained in yellow for two days.
