Equipe Nürnberger is ready to open its season this week in the Tour of Geelong in Australia, to be followed by the Geelong Women's World Cup on Sunday. Trixi Worrack and Regina Schleicher will lead the German team in the two races.

"We are looking forward to our first races and the road season," said team manager Jens Zemke. "The riders are happy that it is finally starting." The team will use the two-day, three-stage Tour as preparation for the first World Cup race of the year. "So far we have adapted well here," Zemke noted. "We'll have to see how the first race kilometres go. The Australians are already riding at a very high level and will present themselves in their homeland at this time of year very strongly, as usual. But we are happy to accept the challenge and will try our best."

The team will send Trixi Worrack, Regina Schleicher, Charlotte Becker, Eva Lutz, Edita Pucinskaite and Suzanne de Goede to the two races.
