Could be an issue with losing boost from your turbo. Can you hear your turbo spinning correctly? I know some TDIs have turbos that are a little easier to hear than other for no apparent reason. Are all your vaccuum lines in good shape? Are the hoses from the turbo to and from the intercooler in good shape? Maybe when something (vacuum hose, intercooler hose) gets warm enough it flexes and leaks. Right when this happens you should pull over (if possible) open the hood and have someone give it a little fuel. You might be able to hear a vacuum leak or an air leak in the intercooler piping. It could also be a bum sensor that sticks at a certain value and when you stopped and restarted you unstuck it.
You need to start eliminating items or find any other symptoms you can to help narrow this down. It is a loss of power right, and that's what is keeping it in the lower gear? Or does it seem more like it is just stuck in lower gear?
