Hometown boys and brothers Fabian and Christian Wegmann will lead Team Gerolsteiner in tomorrow's Münsterland Giro, with rider Fabian on his bike and Directeur Sportif Christian in the team car. The younger brother will hope to capitalize on the good form which brought him the ninth place in the World Championships in Stuttgart on Sunday. Robert Förster will also be there, in case it comes down to a sprint.
Another local boy, Linus Gerdemann, will be captain of the T-Mobile team for the race. "I used to do my training rides here so I know the roads very well, and having skipped the Worlds I will go to the start line with fresh legs," he said on the team's website, t-mobile-team.com. Gerald Ciolek will represent the team if it comes to a mass sprint.
Gerolsteiner for Münsterland: Robert Förster, Thomas Fothen, Oscar Gatto, Heinrich Haussler, Sven Krauss, Thomas Wagner (stagiaire), Fabian Wegmann and Peter Wrolich.
T-Mobile: Eric Baumann, Gerald Ciolek, Linus Gerdemann, Bert Grabsch, André Greipel, André Korff, Stephan Schreck, and Thomas Ziegler.
