The German ProTeam Gerolsteiner will take part in the Dodge Tour de Georgia between April 19-24, with Levi Leipheimer as team captain. "We have received an invitation and have said that we will happily be at this race," said team coordinator Theo Maucher.
Team boss Hans-Michael Holczer commented that the race would be good for the team, not only for its American bike sponsor Specialized, but also for the fact that "our stage race specialist Levi Leipheimer is getting another opportunity to present himself to his American fans and to test his form with regard to the Tour de France."
In addition to Leipheimer, René Haselbacher, Peter Wrolich, Sven Krauß, Heinrich Haussler and Matthias Ruß will race in Georgia. The team's director will be Reimund Dietzen.
