Another German race has defied the odds and survived to be run again in 2009. The GP Triberg-Schwarzwald faced sponsorship problems, but the city of Triberg came through and the pro race will be held as scheduled on June 6.

"It is mainly thanks to the city of Triberg that pro riders will once again be at the start," race organisers Kai and Rik Sauser of the Sauser Sport & Event Agentur said in a press release. The Sausers had announced in October that they were having trouble finding a sponsor for the race after the main sponsor Rothaus Brauerei dropped its support.

Among those participating will be last year's winner Mathias Frank with his new team, BMC Racing Team.
