Former World Champion Regine Schleicher and Trixi Worrack finished seventh and eighth in Saturday's Geelong World Cup, giving the women's Equipe Nürnberger a good start on the season.
"The Equipe rode really well here. We can be very satisfied with Regina and Trixi's placements," said Jens Zemke, Director Sportif.
Noting the fourth place finish by T-Mobile's Ina-Yoko Teutenberg and the fifth place of the German National Team's Angela Brodtka, Zemke added that "I am especially happy that German women's cycling showed its enormous strength so well in the season opener. Four riders in the top ten is a very good result. That shows that we will have an exciting year with many interesting races."
