Totschnig has bronchitis

Georg Totschnig has joined Gerolsteiner's sick list. He moved out of the room he shared with (sick) roommate Peter Wrolich on Sunday, but it was too late. He started feeling bad on Monday's rest day, "But you don't realize so quickly that you're sick," he told After forcing himself through the first two Alpine stages, he was diagnosed Thursday with bronchitis.

"I felt really sick this morning. The bronchitis explains why I haven't been able to do anything at all the last few days," he said. he still plans to make it through to Paris, though.

"Things went actually pretty well up until the second rest day, but I noticed on l'Alpe de Huez that I didn't have enough energy. Naturally I'm not satisfied, but I can't change it."
