Gerhard Trampusch of Team Volksbank is ready to return to racing after recovering from Lyme disease. He will ride the Carinthian Open Sunday for his Austrian Professional Continental team.
"The race is a form test," he said. "Time is running out. I won't push myself too hard and will try to conserve my strength. Otherwise I'll be kaput again."
Directeur sportif Patrick Vetsch was glad to have the Austrian rider back. "The sooner he can start again, the better. Gerhard should simply tray out a little racing and get back into the team work, but not worry about results. I just can't expect that from him right now."
