The ThÃ¼ringen International Rundfahrt, which starts today with a prologue time trial in Zeulenroda, will include an annual memorial prize to be awarded in the name of Amy Gillett for a rider that exhibits exceptional team work, fighting spirit, fairness and/or strength of character during the course of the tour.
During the tour's official presentation yesterday, with guests including the Australian Ambassador to Germany, His Excellency Mr Ian Kemish, ThÃ¼ringen's Minister for the Economy, Technology and Sport, JÃ¼rgen Reinholz, announced the memorial prize that rewards traits that are associated with Amy Gillett.
Amy Gillett was killed in a tragic collision with a motor vehicle the day before the 2005 edition was due to begin. Last year's race was won by local ThÃ¼ringen rider Theresa Senff who once again hopes to stand atop the podium on July 23 after 592km of tough racing through the heart of the region of ThÃ¼ringen.
