Equipe Nürnberger to Qatar

Equipe Nürnberger Versicherungen will open its season at the Ladies' Tour of Qatar, February 8-10, with Sports Manager Jochen Dornbusch making his debut with the team.

Dornbusch said that he had watched the men's race on TV and saw the effect of the wind. "We have a good line-up for this race," he said, and will look especially to former World Champion Regina Schleicher and Dutch rider Suzanne de Goede to do well.

The Equipe is only sending five riders, as Charlotte Becker must stay home due to a cold.

The first Ladies' Tour of Qatar covers 313 kilometres in three stages.
