PICTURE BY TIM DE WAELE Procycling columnist Frank Hoj will decide next Wednesday where he'll be riding next year. Currently with CSC, the Danish rider has been offered a two-year contract by German outfit Gerolsteiner but, according to a clause in his contract with Team CSC team manager Bjarne Riis, CSC has one week to match that offer - the deadline being Wednesday, writes Susanne Horsdal. "I'm privileged to have two offers, but I dare not wait any longer making a decision. If I chose Gerolsteiner my job will be to focus on the spring Classics which are my speciality and otherwise ride in the service of sprinter Danilo Hondo," Hoj told procycling. The Dane began talking to Gerolsteiner during the Vuelta and received a written offer this week, which will also assure him a rise on his current salary. Hoj will ride his last race of the season in Sunday's Paris-Tours.
