Haussler returns to Oz

Gerolsteiner's Heinrich Haussler has been back for a short holiday in the NSW, Australia country town of Inverell where he grew up, according to the Inverell Times. Haussler had a strong first year in the ProTour, culminating in a victory in stage 19 of the Vuelta a Espana.

The 21-year-old is already looking towards 2006 and hopes to ride Paris-Roubaix. Next week Haussler returns to Germany to return to training, but for now is enjoying his flying trip back to Oz. "It's always good to come back," he said.
