Wiesenhof makes Paris-Tours its last race

By Susan Westemeyer

Team Wiesenhof-Felt will make its last appearance ever on Sunday in the ProTour race Paris-Tours. Sponsor Wiesenhof is not renewing its contract which expires at the end of the year, and the team's management said that it was unable to find a new sponsor.

"We are very happy that we can appear on the largest-possible stage again at the end of the season, and that we can close things out there," said Ronny Lauke, Directeur Sportif.

U23 World Champion Peter Velits will lead the team in the French race. The team will have send only six riders, as both of its stars Olaf Pollack and Steffen Wesemann are unable to ride due to injury and illness.

Wiesenhof for Paris-Tours: Peter Velits, Martin Velits, Robert Retschke, Daniel Musiol, Bas Gilling and Stefan van Dijk.
