Former T-Mobile rider Tobias Steinhauser has been named sports director for the Bayern Rundfahrt. "Bavaria is my home and the best German tour takes place exactly there," he said, adding that organiser Ewald Strohmeier is the main reason he accepted the job. "I didn't hesitate long when he called to offer me the job." The Bayern Rundfahrt (Tour of Bavaria) takes place May 24 to 28. Steinhauser rode professionally from 1996 to 2005, for, among others, Mapei, Gerolsteiner, Coast/Bianchi and T-Mobile.
His last team, T-Mobile, has announced that it will ride in the Bayern Rundfahrt, and hopes to send Patrik Sinkewitz. "It's still a little early to be definite, but there's a good possibility that he will start there," said T-Mobile's Sport Director Mario Kummer.
