The post-World War II Eastern Europe stage race "Friedensfahrt" (Peace Race) might be back on the calendar next season, according to German news agency dpa. First established in 1948, the traditional race did not take place this year for the first time in its history. Czech organisation director Pavel Dolezel is reported to have been replaced with the Swiss Herbert Notter, former president of the Swiss cycling federation, and the 2006 parcours is to take the riders from Austria to Germany via the Czech Republic in nine stages from May 12-20.
