Wiesenhof for Henninger Turm

In 2006, Steffen Wesemann was in an escape group with good chances in Rund um den Henninger Turm in Frankfurt, Germany, but a mechanical problem put an end to that promise. This year, he says, he is looking to make up for that lost chance. "I am on top form, and was able to prepare myself specifically for this race and look forward to a hot race."

Wesemann is leading his Team Wiesenhof-Felt in the traditional May 1st race. The team had hoped to go with a double-pronged attack, with sprinter Olaf Pollack as a "joker" who could take a possible mass sprint finish. But Pollack crashed in the first stage of the Niedersachsen Rundfahrt in Bremen, and underwent surgery Friday on his broken collarbone.

Wiesenhof for Henninger Turm: Steffen Wesemann, Martin Velits, Jörg Ludewig, Torsten Schmidt, Felix Odebrecht, Daniel Musiol, Peter Velits, and Steffen Radochla.
