2008 Deutschland Tour presented

A prologue in Kitzbühel, Austria will open this year's Tour of Germany, organisers revealed at the route presentation yesterday. The ski resort will also host the start of Stage 1, before the race ventures into Germany, taking in Munich and then heading to the south-west of the country.

"This year the route is again very challenging, but balanced, where any type of rider has a chance to shine," said Milram's Christian Knees. "It will stay suspenseful until the end. Especially the end of the race, close to our sponsor Milram, will be additionally motivating for us."
