World Champion runner up Trixi Worrack will lead the Equipe Nürnberger in the Grand Prix de Montreal this Saturday. The team is coming off a successful performance in the Tour de l'Aude, in which Worrack finished second overall and the Equipe took the team title.
"I hope that we will be similarly successful overseas as we were in the Tour de l'Aude," said team manger Jens Zemke. "After our World Cup win in Bern and the successes in France, our riders are highly motivated, even if they no longer have the pressure on them after the recent successes."
After the GP, the team will ride the Tour of Grand Montreal from June 4 through 7, before moving south to the Commerce Bank Philadelphia International Championship on June 10, which Equipe's Regina Schleicher won last year.
Equipe Nürnberger for Canada and the US will be Trixi Worrack, Claudia Häusler, Andrea Graus, Regina Schleicher, Marie Lindbergh and Claudia Stumpf.
