Gerolsteiner for the weekend GPs

The winners of the last three GP Schwarzwald are now riding for Team Gerolsteiner - Torsten Hiekmann (2003), Markus Fothen (2004) and Fabian Wegmann (2005) - and the team will be looking to continue that tradition. Someone else will have to win it, though, as none of those three will be competing. Instead, the team is looking to Georg Totschnig and Stefan Schumacher. "I'm interested to see what Georg will do," says directeur sportif Christian Wegmann. "And we all saw in the Giro what Schumi can do."

The next day, Gerolsteiner will send all four of its Swiss riders to the GP Kanton Aargau in Gippingen, Switzerland. Two of them can look back to good results in the race. Markus Zberg finished second in 2004 and eighth last year, and Marcel Strauss was third last year. The other two Swiss riders are Beat Zberg and Sven Montgomery.
