"I am not going to do the Worlds Championships for Germany just to be World Champion. If I want to ride the Worlds to become World Champion then [it will be] definitely in Australian colours," Haussler told Australia's SBS.


Finally had something to post in Int. Race section :D Hopefully he can get his Aussie racing license and we might go Two from Two for the Worlds

Wow that's an awsome sprint team then for next years worlds, better than any other country.

Altough a breakaway will probably suceed so they will be sprinting for a place in the top ten, just got to hope Simon Gerrans is in the break. :|

The italian director apparently did a recon not that long ago and said that its almost certainly going to be a bunch sprint so dont count out an Aussie win just get. The only problem is choosing a rider and then working for that one and getting the guys working that last kilometre like Columbia do. I actually think Renshaw is our best chance for a Bunch sprint but Hausslers definitely a very close second. Whoever can hold there form that late into the season will be picked Renshaw would have built his entire season around leading Cav out at the Tour so his form may have dropped off buy then.

What happened this year? I thought Haussler was all ready to move across and then rejoined the German team in the end. What stopped him this year?

There is a thread about that somewhere in this section... though I am too tired right now to look. Should be within the last 1 or 2 months.

Davis and Brown could be part of that lead out group, or be the one's being led out.

It's going to be a big call who they all ride for, and alot of pressure on that individual to succeed.

Here the link to the other thread, basically it he has to reject his german citzenship, which would be a hard thing to do. But i think if hes pushed to the point of deciding between that and riding for Australia he would do it hopefully doesnt come to that.

Thanks. What I remembered from the earlier episode was that he was equally determined in his words but came to nothing. I hope there's a bit more this tim.e

Now I understand, thanks for the link to the SBS article. He has to give up citizenship in order to conform to the UCI rules which say that once a (dual nationality) rider chooses to race for one country, they can't just change - so if he gives up German citizenship he is then eligible to race for Australia.

That's pretty draconian isn't it? Perhaps they can just impose a time rule so that the rider can't jump b/n countries every year.

given his stalled season and that others will be coming off their top form by then, does he envisage being a or the team leader at the world's?

What is your assessment of the WC course in Geelong, and who do you think the protected Aussies should be ?

Obviously Cadel is reigning WC, but does the course suit him better than yourself or Gerrans ?

What are your key targets for 2011 ? Classics and which GT ?

Will you be at the 2011 TdU ?

Have a good interview and please wish him well for the change of citizenship :D :D :D and recovery from his operation. :D

Cheers
