Team Wiesenhof-Felt has received one of the wildcard invitations to the Amstel Gold Race this weekend,and it intends to make the most of its chance. Team captain Steffen Wesemann, who finished third in Paris-Roubaix and second in Amstel last year is confident.
'"The Amstel Gold Race has an absolutely unique character, totally different from, for example, Paris-Roubaix," he said, "but depending on how the race develops and with a little luck, a surprise is also possible here. My form is 100 percent, and I will surely not settle for just a good result."
His team manager Jens Heppner noted that, "We have a great mood in the team and so far we have managed, through our solidarity and great morale, to achieve some successes. I think that on Sunday we will be able to build on our previous performance and as a team draw attention to ourselves."
Wiesenhof-Felt for Amstel Gold Race: Steffen Wesemann, Peter Velits, Martin Velits, Jörg Ludewig, Torsten Schmidt, Felix Odebrecht, Daniel Musiol and Robert Wagner.
