Wiesenhof-Akud for Ronde van Drenthe

Wiesenhof-Akud will be setting off for the Ronde van Drenthe without the defending champion, Marcel Sieberg. Sieberg has had to sit out much of the spring season with suspected mononucleosis, and is not yet ready to start racing again. However, the team remains nevertheless optimistic.

"We only have 10 days until our first big highlight, Rund um Köln, and so we are doing well," said sprinter Steffen Radochla. "In Drenthe it will depend on our getting in the right group, because we will start with only five riders. But I think we can do it."
