Hey Mari - Estonia, now that's not too far from Berlin. But far from Japan (isn't that where you were?) Drop a line if you ever come this way! I'm torn about about Kloeden - want his chances to be the best and maybe that is a new team environment. But he could be one of those people who wilt when transplanted so T-Mob might just be the place for him. I think something with Godefroot has to give. Kloeden remarked in an interview that if Pevanage was doing the active managing as in the past, he would have been right there in the transfer market and controlling the coming and going of the team riders. That Godefroot was only there to sign the finished contract. So, you know, whatever tactical skills Pevenage may or may not have is made up for in his ability to make contacts in the scene. Something Ullrich says is worth its weight in gold.
