Gerolsteiner has a mixed line-up for Sunday's Paris-Tours classic, trying to cover the chances of the race finishing in a bunch sprint as well as a breakaway. Team director Christian Henn is counting on "a sprint with a big bunch" and has selected his team accordingly. "We have enough fast men that a place in the top 10 is achievable."
An interesting rider could be Heinrich Haussler, who recently won two stages of the Circuit Franco Belge. The 22 year-old is able to sprint from a small breakaway or in a big bunch, although there are also riders like René Haselbacher and Peter Wrolich for a big finish.
The team: Thomas Fothen (Ger), René Haselbacher (Aut), Heinrich Haussler (Ger), Frank Høj (Den), Sven Krauß (Ger), Sebastian Lang (Ger), Ronny Scholz (Ger) and Peter Wrolich (Aut). Sports director: Christian Henn.
