Peter Wrolich has joined the exodus of Gerolsteiner riders to Team Milram. The 34 year-old signed a two-year contract with what will be the only German ProTour team in 2009.

"I have always said that I want to ride at the highest level for another two years and stay in the ProTour. Gerry van Gerwen has fulfilled my dream!" Wrolich said on his website, peterwrolich.at.

Wrolich turned pro in 1999 with Gerolsteiner. He has won stages in the Tour de l'Avenir, the UNIQA Classic, the Sachsen Tour and the Tour of Georgia. He won the Herald Sun Tour in 2001, the Rund um Köln in 2002 and the Rund um die Hainleite in 2004.

At Milram, he will meet Gerolsteiner teammates Johannes Fröhlinger, Matthias Russ, Thomas and Markus Fothen and Fabian Wegmann, as well as Directeur Sportif Christian Henn.
