The team appeared in the ProTour race with only five riders after Olaf Pollack could not start due to a knee injury and Steffen Wesemann fell ill, so that it planned to go with six riders. However, at the last minute, Stefan van Dijk decided to stay at home with his wife who is expecting a child momentarily.
"We didn't have anything to do with the outcome of the race, but we are nevertheless very satisfied with our performance today," said Directeur Sportif Ronny Lauke. "Without a sprinter on the team, of course we didn't have a chance in a mass sprint in such a strong field."

Team Manager Raphael Schweda agreed, saying, "Too bad that we couldn't pull off a surprise. Paris-Tours was a great experience and a worthy end for Team Wiesenhof-Felt."
