After a successful showing at the Deutschland Tour, Team Volksbank-Corratec will head to the Vattenfall Cyclassics in Hamburg on Sunday. Sprinter Olaf Pollack and Deutschland Tour mountains star Daniel Musiol will help the Austrian team.
"Olaf Pollack is a strong weapon if it comes down to a mass sprint and Andreas Dietziker a leader for the team, " said team manager Thomas Kofler, who was looking forward to the race. "We have in the past week demonstrated that we don't hide in a field with ProTour teams. After a nine-day Tour of Germany, the guys are motivated."
Young rider Philipp Ludescher and Harald Morscher will also be part of the Volksbank-Corratec squad. "[Olaf] Pollack and [Pascal] Hungerbühler are rested and Andreas Dietziker has good momentum," said Kofler. "Our initial thoughts about the race are open. We will be vigilant and with a little luck, we are equipped for every situation."
