Germans announce revised World's Team

Only 24 hours after announcing its team for the men's World Championship road race, the Bund Deutscher Radfahrer on Tuesday announced its revised team. Three riders have cancelled their participation in the World's - David Kopp due to injury, and Matthias Kessler and Jens Voigt due to end-of-season lack of condition. In addition, Andreas Klöden will ride on the time trial, at his own request.

The BDR announced the four reserves who will now ride the road race: Christian Knees, Ronny Scholz, Stephan Schreck and Marcel Sieberg.
