Wiesenhof-Akud, Volksbank invited to Deutschland Tour

The Deutschland Tour has given its two wildcard spots to two Continental Pro teams, the German Team Wiesenhof-Akud and the Austrian Team Volksbank. In awarding the two slots, the race management noted that the teams have a strong relationship to the stage race.

The race directors feels themselves obliged to invite Wiesenhof-Akud, "the only German team with Professional Continental status," but also note that the former Team Wiesenhof "has taken part in the Deutschland Tour every year since 2002, has always raced there competitively and as Team Wiesenhof-Akud in 2006, can boast former tour winner Jens Heppner as Sporting Director."
