Thüringen Rundfahrt memorial prize named in honour of Amy Gillett

The Thüringen International Rundfahrt, which starts today with a prologue time trial in Zeulenroda, will include an annual memorial prize to be awarded in the name of Amy Gillett for a rider that exhibits exceptional team work, fighting spirit, fairness and/or strength of character during the course of the tour.

During the tour's official presentation yesterday, with guests including the Australian Ambassador to Germany, His Excellency Mr Ian Kemish, Thüringen's Minister for the Economy, Technology and Sport, Jürgen Reinholz, announced the memorial prize that rewards traits that are associated with Amy Gillett.

Amy Gillett was killed in a tragic collision with a motor vehicle the day before the 2005 edition was due to begin. Last year's race was won by local Thüringen rider Theresa Senff who once again hopes to stand atop the podium on July 23 after 592km of tough racing through the heart of the region of Thüringen.
