Wrolich travels around the world

Peter Wrolich of Team Gerolsteiner is turning into a world traveller. The Austrian is off on the first stage of his round-the-world trip, as he flew on Monday to South Africa with his wife and son.

As in years before, "I am starting my winter training in Capetown. I have always had great conditions there," he said on his website, peterwrolich.at. He expects to find not only better weather than at home but also companionship. "I especially look forward to long training sessions with my friend René Haselbacher." The two Austrian riders rode together at Team Gerolsteiner before Haselbacher joined Team Astana in 2007.

"Paco" will stay in South Africa over the holidays, returning to Europe for two weeks before the team presentation. Directly after that he will fly to Australia for the Tour Down Under (January 22-27), which will be followed by a flight to the USA West Coast for the Tour of California (February 17-24).
