Wildcard still available for Deutschland Tour

Organisers of the Deutschland Tour will hand out one more wild card for the 2006 race, to be held from August 1-9, to join the 20 ProTour teams automatically selected for the event. German squad Wiesenhof Akud have already been granted a start in the race, but one more place needs to be filled.

Currently, six teams have applied for the positions, including Team Miche (Ita), Naturino - Sapore di Mare (Ita), Skil-Shimano (Ned), Elk Haus - Simplon (Aut), Vorarlberg - Volksbank (Aut) and Wiesenhof Akud (Ger). A decision on which two teams will compete will be made on March 2. Tour director Kai Rapp explained that, "By handing out two wild cards we want to appreciate the increasing interest in our event."
