Team Gerolsteiner will go to the Memorial Cimurri race Saturday with only seven riders. Fabian Wegmann, who was to have been one of the team's co-captains, has had to cancel his appearance due to a cold. "It is just a cold," said Sport Director Christian Henn. "I assume he will be ready to ride again in one to two weeks." Wegmann is scheduled to ride the Giro di Lombardia on October 20, a race in which he finished third last year.
Gerolsteiner will now be led by Oliver Zaugg in the Memorial Cimurri. The Swiss rider recently finished 15th in the Vuelta a España. Gerolsteiner is sending Johannes Fröhlinger, Tim Klinger, Bernhard Kohl, Andrea Moletta, Ronny Scholz, Zaugg, and stagiaire Mathias Frank to the race.
