Vino and Klöden to Critérium International

Alexander Vinokourov and Andreas Klöden lead the T-Mobile Team at the 77th edition of the two-day Critérium International, which will be held in and around the French Ardennes region over the Easter weekend. Vino and Klöden will be supported in France by a mixed team of T-Mobile classics specialists and climbers, under the guidance of directeur sportif Valerio Piva.

Although T-Mobile press officer Luuc Eisenga is wary about the stiff competition that the T-Mobile Team will face at the Critérium International, the Dutchman is upbeat about the team's chances in the 293.6 km event. "Vino and Klöden can lay down a marker for us. Vino showed good form at last Saturday's Milan-San Remo, repeatedly attacking the peloton on the Poggio climb, while Tour runner-up Klöden eased his way into better form in the final stages of last week's Tirreno-Adriatico."
