T-Mobile targets Bavaria

Alexandre Vinokourov and Steffen Wesemann will lead the T-Mobile team for the Bayern-Rundfahrt (Tour of Bavaria) which runs Wednesday May 25 to Sunday May 29. According to the team, Vinokourov is using the five-day race as the first serious competitive test in his preparation for this year's Tour de France.

After winning Liege-Bastogne-Liege Classic, Vinokourov returned to his native Kazakhstan, to relax and then start his build-up for the Tour. He has spent the past week at a training camp on Tenerife and is ready to test himself in competition. "I am feeling good right now. Let's see if the training at an altitude of 2000m pays off."
