Rund um Köln to continue

Hans-Martin Fraas, co-organizer of the German one-day race, Rund um Köln, announced Friday in an interview with Challenge magazine that the race would take place again in 2008. The race's future had been put into question when two main sponsors dropped out this year in light of the many doping scandals in the sport.

"The sponsoring question is still open," Fraas said. "We are holding discussions with various partners." He did not name names, and indicated that there were alternative plans for a smaller budget. (SW)
