Two top tens for Wiesenhof in Belgium

By Susan Westemeyer

Team Wiesenhof-Felt had top ten finishes in both races in Belgium this weekend, much to the satisfaction of the German Professional Continental team. On Sunday, sprinter Olaf Pollack finished tenth in Kuurne Brussel Kuurne, while Stefan Van Dijk finished eighth Saturday in Oomloop Het Volk.

"We are fully satisfied with our performance in both races this weekend," said Directeur Sportif Ronny Lauke. "We could tell that the riders wanted to do wll and I am happy that we had a good beginning to the Classics season. It makes us want more."

The team had actually hoped to do much better, though. Captain Steffen Wesemann was a favorite for the race on Saturday, but a flat tire at a critical time stopped him. "I had just joined Jimmy Casper in a breakaway, when it happened," he said. He was unable to rejoin the leading group and eventually dropped out of the race.
