The GP Triberg-Schwarzwald features a 23.2 km course that must be ridden seven times, for a total of 162.4 km and 4000 metres of climbing. And if tradition repeats itself, a Gerolsteiner rider will be on top of the podium at the end of the day. The last three winners of the race now ride for that team, although none of them will be participating Saturday. The German team will be looking to Tour de France stage winner Georg Totschnig to lead them this year. The team had to scratch its other star rider, Stefan Schumacher, at the last minute, due to a bad cold.

German competitor T-Mobile is counting on Linus Gerdemann, who recently finished sixth in the Vuelta a Catalunya.
