Rund um Düren 185 km - cat. 1.5
As Mick Knapton reported in his excellent "Weekend Round up " this week
"Bad news for the German division two squad Nurnberger, as it was announced on Friday that their main sponsor the Nurnberger Insurance company is to pull out of backing the team at the end of the year"
Of course the best way to attract a new sponser is by getting results - and that is exactly what the Czech rider Lubor Tesar did for the Nurnberger at the 1.5 Rund um Düren which was held around Eifelstädtchen on Sunday 21/04/02.
Lubor Tesar made the break which occurred with around 30 kilometres to go - and won the sprint ahead of Kurt-Alse Arvesen (Nor-Eds)and the excellent veteran Bart Voskamp.
Team Manager Udo Sprenger was naturally delighted with his teams performance
"the team co-operated perfectly.It is not an easy situation for us - but we must do the best we can"
