Equipe Nürnberger for Omloop Het Volk

By Susan Westemeyer

Suzanne de Goede and Trixi Worrack will lead Equipe Nürnberger in the women's Omloop Het Volk this Sunday. De Goede, who hopes to meet the Dutch Olympic qualifications, won the first stage of the Women's Tour of New Zealand last month. Worrack finished fourth in the Ronde van Vlaanderen last year.

"We are taking a very strong team to Belgium," said Directeur Sportif Dennis Sandig. "With Trixi Worrack and Suzanne de Goede we have two riders at the start who are capable of achieving something in the coming spring races."

This is the third Het Volk for women, running 126 kilometres from Deerlijk to Deinze, with cobblestone passages and the typical Belgian hillingen (Flemish for 'climbs'). Last year, only half of the riders finished the race, which was marked by typical Belgian wind, rain and cold.

De Goede and Worrack will be supported by Christina Becker, Eva Lutz, Claudia Häusler, Marlen Jöhrend and Marie Lindberg.
