Gerolsteiner announces Tour team
The German Gerolsteiner team has announced its lineup for the upcoming
Tour de France. Under the direction of Hans-Michael Holczer and Christian
Henn, the nine man squad will consist of a mixture of German, Austrian
and Swiss riders.

to get one man in the top 10 of the general classification," said Hans-Michael
Holczer. "Secondly we have a world class sprinter in Danilo Hondo, who
we want to try and get into the green jersey. With Ronny Scholz and Sebastian
Lang the team will take two German Tour-neo's to the Grande Boucle, which
will give them their debut in the toughest cycling race in the world."
