Team Volksbank will be heading to the GP Chiasso and the GP di Lugano this weekend, calling them "exactly the right challenge."
"We want to be active," said Director Sportif Lukas Zumsteg. "If a group gets away at the beginning, we want to be part of it. But first we have to see how things develop."
The Austrian Professional Continental team did not say whether its newly-signed advisor Jan Ullrich would be in attendance.
Volksbank for GP Chiasso and GP di Lugano: Pascal Hungerbühler, Christian Lener, Andreas Matzbacher, Harald Morscher, Christian Pömer, Patrick Redesser, Florian Stalder and René Weissinger
