Christian Pfannberger will lead the Austrian Professional Continental Team Elk Haus Simplon in Monday's Rund um Köln. It is his first race back after being rammed by a taxi on Gran Canaria at the end of March. It was first thought that he had broken his thigh, but he ended up with only bruises and scrapes.
The 27-year-old will be looking mainly to get some racing time in, while teammates Peter Pichler and Jochen Summer will be looking to do well in a possible sprint finish.
Elk Haus for Rund um Köln: Peter Pichler, Marc Weisshaupt, Hannes Grundlinger, Martin Comploi, Harald Starzengruber, Robert Lauscha, Christian Pfannberger and Jochen Summer.
