Volksbank for the weekend races

Team Volksbank will use the weekend races to prepare for one of its season highlights, the Tour de Suisse. "We have to be ready, our riders now have to show what they can do," said Patrick Vetsch, directeur sportif for the Austrian Professional Continental team.

The team will send basically the same squad to the GP Triberg Schwarzwald on Saturday and the GP Kanton Aargau - Gippingen on Sunday. "I want to see fireworks," Vetsch said. "In Gippingen we will see where we stand in comparison to the ProTour teams."
