The German Professional Continental Team Wiesenhof-Felt has received wild card invitations to two ProTour races this spring, Gent-Wevelgem and Amstel Gold Race, the team announced Wednesday.
"These nominations are a confirmation of our newly formed team around captain Steffen Wesemann," said Team Manager Raphael Schweda. Wesemann finished second last year in the Amstel Gold Race.
The team hopes for further wild card invitations to further Spring Classic races, such as Paris-Roubaix and the Ronde von Vlaanderen, which Wesemann won in 2004.
