T-Mobile First and Second in Gent-Wevelgem!
You heard it right. T-Mobile came through in a big way today to take first and second place in the Belgium classic Gent-Wevelgem. The team tactics and fitness lined up perfectly today for Marcus Burghardt and Roger Hammond. Great job guys!

Marcus Burghardt relaxing before a long day of training in Mallorca. Each training session was planned out per individual by team doctors, and in addition all 30 riders had their SRM data analyzed each night prior to the next day's training. The hard work and systems are starting to pay off.
Gent-Wevelgem results
1 Marcus Burghardt (Ger) T-Mobile

2 Roger Hammond (GBr) T-Mobile

3 Oscar Freire (Spa) Rabobank

4 Francisco José Ventoso (Spa) Saunier Duval-Prodir

5 Christophe Mengin (Fra) Française Des Jeux

6 Robbie McEwen (Aus) Predictor-Lotto

Here is Roger Hammond working with Gear Fisher to learn the Training Peaks system at the first team camp in Lugano. Each rider was trained on how to use WKO+ to download and analyze their SRM data, then synchronize the files up to their online Training Peaks accounts.
