This week Team Gerolsteiner will ride its last race ever in Germany. Local rider Fabian Wegmann, who finished seventh in the recent World Championships, will lead the team in the Sparkassen Münsterland Giro on Friday, October 3.
Wegmann is actually one of four Worlds riders who will be in the race for the German ProTour team, which is stopping at the end of the season. The others are fellow German Sebastian Lang, Markus Zberg of Switzerland, and Tom Stamsnijder of the Netherlands. The team will be filled out by Robert Förster, Thomas Fothen, Heinrich Haussler and Sven Krauss.
