Team Wiesenhof-Felt hopes that last year's winner of the Giro del Capo can repeat his victory this year. Peter Velits, who won the stage race last year for Team Konica-Minolta, will be leading the German Professional Continental team in the South African race, which starts today, March 6.
Velits also won a stage in the race last year, as did Wiesenhof teammate Steffen Radochla. "We will be there with a strong team and hope that Peter Velits can continue the good performances, we have seen in his preparations and he can defend his title," said Jens Heppner, Sports Director.
Peter Velits, who finished second in last years Slovak Republic U23 Championships, will be joined by the Slovak Republic's U23 champion, his twin brother, Martin.
