Niedersachsen Rundfahrt finds money to continue

By Susan Westemeyer

Organizers of the Niedersachsen Rundfahrt have come up with enough sponsor money to stage the race again this year. "The race can take place," said Race Director Otto Pätzold. "We are speaking with various sponsors and can promise that the race will happen. But I can't say any more at the moment."

Last week, Pätzold commented that the race may have to be cancelled because it was still €30,000 short.

Speaking to, he noted that sponsorship still was missing for three of the special jerseys. "But we are holding discussions," he said, adding that these missing sponsorships were not important enough to endanger the race.
