Stevens Racing team for Irish Tour

Returning a year after competing in the event, the Stevens Racing Team is the latest to be confirmed for the 2008 FBD Insurance Rás. The German squad thus joins previously-announced teams Iran Team Azad and Bulgaria's Team Nessebar in the 2.2-ranked Irish race, which begins in Navan on May 18th and finishes in Skerries eight stages later.

The 24-year-old René Birkenfeld and 26-year-old Johannes Sickmüller return after previous participation in the event. Both are former German national cyclo-cross champions and will be joined by Sascha Wagner, Yannik Teidt and the promising eighteen year old Ole Quast.
