The German women's teams are preparing for the third World Cup race of the season, the Ronde van Drenthe on Saturday. Equipe Nürnberger Versicherung will be lead by Trixi Worrack, who finished second in the 2006 World's, and was fourth in last weekend's Ronde van Vlaanderen. She will be supported by, among others, Regina Schleicher, who won the Drentse 8 race on Wednesday, and German time trial champion Charlotte Becker.
The T-Mobile women's team will feature Ina-Yoko Teutenberg, who last year won a stage in the race when it was held as a three-stage race. This year the three stages are being held as individual one-day races. The team will ride for Teutenberg if the race comes down to a mass sprint, otherwise it is up to every rider to seek her own chance.
Nürnberger for Ronde van Drenthe: Trixi Worrack, Edita Pucinskaite, Andrea Graus, Eva Lutz, Regina Schleicher and Charlotte Becker.
T-Mobile for Ronde van Drenthe: Judith Arndt, Kate Bates, Chantal Beltman, Suzanne de Goede, Ina-Yoko Teutenberg, and Linda Villumsen.
