Two more important races are on tap for the women's circuit, the World Cup race in Plouay, France, on Saturday, followed by the Holland Ladies Tour, September 3-8.
"These are two very important races for us," especially in light of the season finale, the World Cup race Rund um den Nürnberg Altstadt, said Equipe Nürnberger Versicherung Sport Director Jens Zemke. His team will feature two former winners of the race, Regina Schleicher (2002) and Edita Pucinskaite (2004). They will be joined by Trixi Worrack, Andrea Graus and Eva Lutz.
For the Holland race, Charlotte Becker and Marie Lindberg will replace Pucinskaite and Lutz.
Team Getränke Hoffman will also be at the races. Tina Liebig and Angela Brodtka will lead the team in France. "I don't know the course, but in light of my good level of performance the last few weeks, I am highly motivated to do well in France," Brodtka said. They will be joined by Natalie Bates, Virginia Henning and Sandra Missbach.
Two days later, Christina Becker, Sandra Missbach, Angela Brodtka, Steffi Pohl, Tina Liebig and Virginia Henning will ride the Holland Ladies Tour.
