According to radsport-news.com, a new Continental team will be on the road in Germany next season, named Notebooksbilliger.de, an online computer store. With 15 riders on its roster, the team is managed by Karsten Niemann and directed by Stefan Sprenger and Gregor Kritschenko. It hopes to race next season without too much pressure, before ramping up its program in 2007 with the possibility of increased sponsorship.
The team will feature Enrico Zinn and Timo Scholz as its top riders, along with the experienced Renno Wernicke, who will serve as team captain. It will be presented in the town of Dessau (also a co-sponsor) next February, but already plans to start in the Tour of Thailand in January. Notebooksbilliger.de will race in the major German races and take part in tours in France, Serbia and Luxembourg.
