Gerolsteiner now riding Willier T's?!?!?!(6 posts)

Gerolsteiner now riding Willier T's?!?!?!Ride-Fly
Mar 5, 2003 9:09 PM
I was checking out and it appears that they are now on WTs. I was wondering why the switch after all, they were only on Kleins for only 1 year!! Anyone have any insight on this?? I wonder how the riders feel about going from one of the best race frames to a Willier? Also, how many teams are riding on Eddy Merckx Team SCs??? Quickstep-Davitan I know, is Domo?? Thanks.

No, Quick Step are on Time's.
Teams on Merckx for 03: Lotto-Domo, G.S. Vlaanderen-T-Interim, Vlaanderen - T Interim Ladies Team

When they were just Lotto, they were on Litespeed's for just 1 year. Same with Gerolsteiner, 1 year with Kleins.
Also Lampre to Willier. Rumsas' has secret EPO compartment. nmSpunout

I am not suprised. I think one of the reasons Klein came out with the Q-Pro Carbon was to try and stay in the pro's. The Klein's were notoriously stiff, which while fine for US Crits is probably a little punishing on cobbled classics and LONG stage races. The new Willier seems to be really inovative taking Merckx's concept of wrapping the chain stay with carbon, to having virtually the entire frame made of SC and wrapping it all with Carbon.
