Peace race to return in 2006 with new route

The Friedensfahrt (Peace Race), which was cancelled this year due to financial problems, is likely to be held again next year, according to the Czech Cycling Union (CCS). CCS deputy director Cestmir Kalas told the Prague news agency CTK that the race would have a new route, running through Germany, the Czech Republic and Austria, but not through Poland. The planned dates are May 27 through June 3, 2006. The race was not held this year for the first time since its inception in 1948.
