Team Volksbank will be celebrating an exciting "first" next week: it will be the first Austrian team to participate in a ProTour race when it contests the Deutschland Tour.
Team Manager Thomas Kofler said, "Our guys want to show what they can do. After the Tour of Austria, they were rather depressed because of the poor results, but that just motivates them more for the Deutschland Tour. I will be excited to see just how big the difference is in a ProTour race. I assume that we as a team will represent Austria well."
The team will be led by German sprinter Sven Teutenberg, who returned to racing this season after a two-year break. "My goal is a stage win, absolutely. And hopefully immediately by the prologue in Düsseldorf, my hometown. Putting on the yellow jersey there would be a dream come true."
Team Volksbank for the Deutschland Tour: Sven Teutenberg, Gerrit Glomser, Andreas Matzenbacher, Harald Morscher, Werner Riebenbauer, Patrick Riedesser, Pascal Hungerbühler, and Christoph Girschweiler.
Gerolsteiner has also announced its lineup for the Deutschland Tour: Sebastian Lang, Levi Leipheimer, Andrea Moletta, Davide Rebellin, Ronny Scholz, Stefan Schumacher, Georg Totschnig and Markus Zberg.
