89th Tour de France - Grand Tour

Tour de France news for June 15, 2002

Kloeden out of Tour

Telekom rider Andreas Kloeden says he does not expect to start this year's Tour de France.

"My condition is less good than that of the rest of the riders [on the team]. A start does not make much sense," he told German newspaper Lausitzer Rundschau. "Other riders are better placed to help our captain Erik Zabel."

Kloeden was forced to abandon the Tour of the Basque Country in April with an inflammation in his right knee and has only been able to ride again for the last two weeks.
