The German road championships for both elite men and women will be held in Cottbus on June 28 this year. RK Endspurt 09 Cottbus hosts the championships in close collaboration with the LV Brandenburg, the state's overseeing cycling body. The time trial championships will also be held in Cottbus, two days prior to the road events.
The time trial and road events have usually been held in different locations, but this time those athletes participating in both events will not have stressful travels. They can use the Saturday to scout out the route. "We are happy that Cottbus can host both events and it shows that cycling has still lots of support in financially dire times," said Martin Wolf, the secretary general of the German cycling federation.
Wolf said that there are several interesting applicants already for the 2010 event.
