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.

"We want to aim for two things above all: first with Georg Totschnig 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."
