Gerolsteiner and Volksbank for Settimana Ciclistica Internazionale

Gerolsteiner is sending a mix of experience and youth to the Settimana Ciclistica Internazionale in Italy next week, which runs from March 25-29. Four youngsters and four veterans will contest the five-day race which goes over 835.5 km and features two Cat. 1 climbs, as well as a team time trial. The team will look to sprinter Robert Förster, who last year won the fourth stage as their leader.

Gerolsteiner for Settimana Ciclistica: Francesco De Bonis, Robert Förster, Mathias Frank, Johannes Fröhlinger, Volker Ordowski, Matthias Russ, Ronny Scholz and Peter Wrolich.

Team Volksbank have also been invited to the event and will travel from their base in Austria to Italy to take part. The Professional Continental team will look to Florian Stalder, who last year finished in the top ten in two stages, but will have to do without its captain, Gerrit Glomser, who is still recovering from an illness.

Volksbank for Settimana Ciclista Internazionale: Andreas Dietziker (Sui), Alexander Gufler (Ita), Harald Morscher (Aut), Elias Schmäh (Sui), Christoph Sokoll (Aut) and Florian Stalder (Sui).
