The Peach Race will be held again in 2006, after its cancellation last year due to financial problems. The Czech cycling association, CCS, announced Friday that the race will start May 13 in Linz, Austria and end May 20 in Hannover, Germany. It will run from Austria though the Czech Republic to Germany. Traditionally the race has also run through Poland, but will not do so this year. Herbert Notter from Switzerland will be the new race director. The Peace Race was first run in 1948 and was at one time the largest amateur cycling race.
