Volksbank to go Rund um Köln

By Susan Westemeyer

Team Volksbank will help celebrate 100 years of Rund um Köln. And although the Austrian Professional Continental team will be without top German sprinters Olaf Pollack (World Track championships) or Andre Korff (back problems), it will look to local rider Daniel Musiol and Rene Weissinger, who last year finished ninth in the race.

Patrick Vetsch, the team's Directeur Sportif, called it "a race which it is difficult to predict, more so than any other. Sprint or group, everything is possible here. The weather will play a large role." The current weather forecast for Easter Monday is a mixture of rain and snow, with a low of 29° and a high of 41°.

Team Volksbank for Rund um Köln: Josef Benetseder (Aut), Alexander Egger (Aut), Peter Presslauer (Aut), Pascal Hungerbühler (Swi), Philipp Ludescher (Aut), Daniel Musiol (Ger), René Weissinger (Ger)
