Danish national track coach Heiko Salzwedel is leaving his current post when his contract expires on December 31. Salzwedel has been in charge of the national track team since 2005, overseeing its most successful period ever. He has helped deliver several world championship medals and an Olympic silver medal in the men's team pursuit in Beijing.
"I am absolutely satisfied, although working on a tight budget, with the ongoing support from the Danish Cycling Federation during the last couple of years," said Salzwedel to the Danish national federation's website, CyclingWorld.dk. "I am looking for a long time solution, with some clear opportunities in my career as a coach. This is currently not wanted in Denmark, therefore, I have to look for a solution outside of Denmark."
Federation boss Jesper Worre said that, "We are looking for an international profile with the same skills as Heiko, and we are interested in hearing from candidates."
