Team Wiesenhof-Felt is opening its 2007 season in the Volta ao Algarve, starting Wednesday, Feb. 21. The team will be led by its two new captains, Steffen Wesemann and Olaf Pollack.

"After all those weeks of preparation, our riders are ready to go," said Directeur Sportif Ronny Lauke. Wesemann will be preparing for the upcoming spring classics, while Pollack will look for his chances in the sprint finishes. "That doesn't mean that we're only looking at the stage finishes, though," Lauke noted. "All the riders are possible for the Classics in March in April. They will do everything they can to get that important race experience."

Wiesenhof-Felt for Volta ao Algarve: Steffen Wesemann, Steffen Radochla, Olaf Pollack, BAs Giling, Torsten Schmidt, Jörg Ludewig, Daniel Musiol, and Stefan Van Dijk.
