Janorschkes team receives wild card for giro

"I was almost a little speechless when I received the news. We were self-confident with our application, but we also knew that we were more of an aubenseiter. Now it feels like the first win of the season. This is a huge confirmation for us", said ralph denk, team manager of the pro-continental team, where grischa janorschke from altenkunstadt is also under contract. "The giro gives us the chance to prove ourselves", fugte think of.

Janorschke unlikely to take part

The giro d'italia will be the highlight of the season for the team's cyclo-cross specialists. Thanks to the early decision of the organizers, the team is able to organize its racing program and season preparation in such a way that the team is ready to compete at the start line. Grischa janorschke as a sprinter and classics specialist could hardly be considered for a starting place at the tour of italy. The 24-year-old had to achieve his usual good results in the one-day races in belgium and holland this spring.
The young czech leopold konig was set for the giro with a view to the overall classification at net-app. Konig finished second in the 2011 tour of austria, third in the tour de l'ain and fifth in the tour of britain. "We believe that leo has not yet exhausted his potential and that he can finish the giro in the top 20", hopes think. The loop through italy leads from 5. Up to 27. May from herning/danmark to milan. The cycling pros have to cover almost 3500 km in 21 stages. The program includes two individual time trials, a team time trial and five mountain climbs.


For the nomination of the currently in germany highest classified team obviously economic reasons were decisive. The new head of giro, michele acquarone, is focusing on opening up the market and knows the u.S. Company for data and number management very well. Net-app – annual sales of around five billion euros – has been working with the giro for some time now. Even a giro start in germany in the near future could become a topic now.
The german cycling team has an estimated annual budget of 2 million euro. Denk wants to start as soon as possible in the tour de france and a pro-tour license, for which, however, a multiple of the current sponsorship would be required. Ft/dpa
