Alain Rumpf, the International Cycling Union's (UCI) ProTour manager, hopes to see more German races in the top level of the sport. German cycling has suffered numerous race cancellations in recent years, and currently, the one-day race Vattenfall Cyclassics is the only German race in the ProTour. In an interview this weekend, Rumpf said his organisation "would be happy to increase Germany's participation in the international racing calendar."
