T-Mobile with "plenty of options"

The Spring Classics season enters its last lap with Sunday's Liège- Bastogne-Liège, the oldest of cycling’s five monuments. After convincing but unsuccessful performances at the Amstel Gold Race and La Flèche Wallonne, T-Mobile is now looking to the third and final round of the Ardennes Classics series to score a victory.

The German squad, which won the team classification at the other two hilly classics, have moved up to second spot in the ProTour ranking. "With our strong squad, the odds are good for Liège," said Patrik Sinkewitz, who finished in fifth in the Netherlands and Belgium respectively. For Sunday’s looping 262km trip through the steep pine-wooded valleys and high plateaux of the Ardennes, ‘Sinki’ will be accompanied once again by Matthias Kessler, Kim Kirchen, Thomas Ziegler and the two veterans Eddy Mazzoleni and Steffen Wesemann, who was a strong runner-up at the Amstel Gold Race.
