Germany will be represented at the Olympics in Beijing in August by male road racers Fabian Wegmann, Gerald Ciolek, Jens Voigt, Bert Grabsch and Stefan Schumacher according to Teletekst. From that collection of riders, two will be designated to compete in the individual time trial.

Notably absent from that list are Erik Zabel and Andreas Klöden, who finished second in the Tour de France in 2004 and 2006. Zabel may have been omitted in light of a confession from last year that he used EPO in the 1990s.
