don't know where you got that. But he is 6'2" or 6'3" and about 78kgs. He will always be a good tt'er.
His results speak for themselves. He won the u19 German championships. And the Germans have always excelled at this discipline. Two years later he won the u23 German championship, and beat Gretsch and others to win that title. Never been a mug.
Was a stagiare on Gerolsteiner in 2005.
But he barely could beat Walker in the GC in 2005 Thuringen Rundfahrt, indeed he only won because Walker got a mechanical on the final stage. He was not timetrialling better than Walker then.
Hen can't win every race... But in 2005 there was a mountain time trial in the Regio tour, there he won and beat guys like Maxim Monfort
