Gerald Ciolek will look for a sprint finish in the GP Plouay ProTour race this Sunday. He is coming off three stage wins in the Deutschland Tour.

"The challenging terrain should suit Gerald," said T-Mobile Directeur Sportif Tristan Hoffman. "Pure sprinters will struggle over the rolling terrain, but he won't have a problem sticking with the bunch."

He will be supported there by Roger Hammond, Greg Henderson, Jakob Piil, Marcus Burghardt, Marco Pinotti, Frantisek Rabon and Thomas Ziegler. Both Burghardt and Hammond will focus on breakaway groups, and will use the race to hone their form for upcoming events. Burghardt will ride the Worlds Championships the end of the month, and Hammond is preparing for his season highlight, the Tour of Britain.
