Pfannberger healthy enough to ride

Austrian Christian Pfannberger will be able to start Sunday in the men's road race in Stuttgart, his federation has announced. He has recovered from a severe cold and feels able to ride again.

Pfannberger came home from the 3-Länder Tour with a heavy cold, and it was unclear until yesterday whether he would fly to Stuttgart or not. "I talked to Christian on the phone today and he is getting better," said national coach Franz Hartl. "Replacement René Haselbacher, who would have started in his place, has already been told he won't be needed."
