Trixi Worrack is facing a busy weekend in Switzerland. The Equipe Nürnberger rider will race the individual time trial Souvenir Magali Pache in Lausanne on Friday before helping to lead the team in the World Cup race Tour de Berne.

The time trial is an invitation race in memory of Swiss cyclist Magali Pache, who was killed by a drunk driver while riding to the showers after the final stage of the Trophee d'Or in 2000. It traditionally features the biggest names in women's cycling.

The Equipe will have three major threats in Sunday's Tour de Berne, the sixth World Cup race of the season: defending champion Edita Pucinskaite, Suzanne de Goede, who is currently second in the World Cup rankings, and Worrack. They will be supported by Eva Lutz, Claudia Häusler, and former World Champion Regina Schleicher, who won last week's GP Liberazione.
