Hans wins Cadolzburg

The race around the Cadolzburg in Germany is a mini-Flanders, with short sections of cobbles, a steep climb, many spectators and the unpredictable weather. This year's edition was won by Sebastian Hans from Team Mapei-Heizomat. It was Hans' first victory for the team in blue. The strong showing of Mapei-Heizomat was completed by Christoph Schwerdt and Florian Völk in fifth and sixth, respectively.

The race went over seven laps of 21.6 kilometres, for a total of 151.2 kilometres. It started out in cool and rainy conditions. Mapei-Heizomat was trying to get the win to Schwerdt, who is the local boy on the team, coming from near-by Nürnberg. Schwerdt, Völk and Hans made the ten-man break that peeled off the peloton midway through the race.
