Wegmann ready for the next step

By Brecht Decaluwé in Liège

After coming close to victory in Flèche Wallonne on Wednesday, Gerolsteiner's Fabian Wegmann is hoping that his form is on the rise. Wegmann finished 22nd at Liège-Bastogne-Liège but was really targeting a place on the podium. Now the German is heading to Frankfurt for the Rund um den Henninger-Turm on Thursday, before taking a break to build up for further season objectives.

"Henninger-Turm is an important race for us as we are a German team," said Wegmann. "The next races are the Bayern Rundfahrt and the Dauphiné Libéré. My main goals are the Tour de France and especially the Olympics. Then there's a little break again and the Worlds.

"I want to win a big race and I think it's possible," he said. "I was third in the Giro di Lombardia two years ago so I did a podium place in a big race. Now, I want to take the next step forward. If you're on the podium then you can win. I also came really close in the Flèche Wallonne."
