Haussler still unsure about Worlds

Heinrich Haussler is still unsure for which country he will race in the next World Championships, which take place in Geelong, Australia. Haussler was born in Australia, but moved to Germany as a teenager in order to become a cycling professional. He holds both citizenships.

Whether he will race for Germany at the Worlds in the fall this year remains to be seen. "It is still open," Haussler said, according to dpa. "For the moment I have other goals and I am concentrating one hundred percent on the Spring Classics and the Tour de France," Haussler said during the Cervélo TestTeam presentation in Faro, in southern Portugal.

In order to race for Australia, he would have to give up his German citizenship again. "This is a step that requires some serious thinking and has to be done after consulting with my family," Haussler said.

Haussler had an extraordinary Spring campaign in 2009. In Milano-Sanremo his late move was almost enough, but he was narrowly beaten by a very fast-sprinting Mark Cavendish. In the Ronde van Vlaanderen he finished second again, behind Quick Step's Stijn Devolder.

Haussler also won the Tour de France stage from Vittel to Colmar, which finished close to where he lives in Freiburg, Germany.
