Volksbank goes all out

By Susan Westemeyer

Team Volksbank will be stretched to the limit this coming weekend, as it participates in four races. The Austrian Professional Continental team has only 16 riders, one of whom is out sick, so literally all of the other team members will be in action.

On Friday, Mariusz Witecki will lead five teammates at the Szlakiem Grodow Piastowskich in his native Poland. Another six riders, under captain Florian Stalder, will ride the GP Larciano and Giro di Toscana in Italy. The remaining three team members will ride Wien-Lassnitzhöhe.

The only rider missing out on the action is Gerhard Trampusch, who is recovering from Lyme disease.

Volksbank for Szlakiem Grodów Piastowskich: Josef Benetseder (Aut), Gerrit Glomser (Aut), Christian Lener (Aut), Philipp Ludescher (Aut), René Weissinger (Ger) and Mariusz Witecki (Pol).

The men for GP Larciano and Giro di Toscana: Pascal Hungerbühler (Sui), Andreas Matzbacher (Aut), Harald Morscher (Aut), Christian Pömer (Aut), Patrick Riedesser (Aut) and Florian Stalder (Sui).

The men for Wien-Laßnitzhöhe: Tyson Apostol (USA), Werner Riebenbauer (Aut) and Mathias Ladner (Aut).
