Trixi Worrack of Team Nürnberger Versicherung will look to defend her title at the Albstadt Frauen-Etappenrennen this week. It is a national tour which this year has been elevated by the UCI to a 2.2 category race.

The Worlds runner-up will be supported by a strong team of veterans Claudia Häusler, Andrea Graus and Claudia Stumpf, as well as young riders Sabine Fischer and Corinna Thumm.

The race opens Tuesday evening with a four kilometre long prologue. It then continues with stages of 100 kilometres on Wednesday and 92 kilometres on Thursday, with both stages starting at 16:30.

Nürnberger took three of the top four positions in the race last year, with Worrack first, Tina Liebig (now with Getränke Hoffman) second and Eva Lutz fourth.
