Cycle-Collstrop received a UCI wild card yesterday, opening the door for the remnants of the Unibet.com team of 2007 to enter ProTour events as long as the organisers do not slam the door shut. The Sweden-registered team is hoping to participate in the Ronde van Vlaanderen on April 6, and they have a good argument for it: former winner Steffen Wesemann.

The Swiss rider gets along well with the rough cobbles and has also shone in Paris-Roubaix in the past. Last year he finished third in northern France. His best result in L'Enfer du Nord ("the Hell of the North") was a second place in 2002, ahead of Tom Boonen.
