T-Mobile has expressed its interest in Dutch rider Bram Tankink, who is currently riding for Quickstep-Innergetic. "We are very interested in Tankink," confessed T-Mobile team manager Bob Stapleton to Dutch newspaper Algemeen Dagblad. "He would fit perfectly in our team. I also think he would fit more into our team then for instance at Rabobank. He would get more freedom here"
Tankink is hoping to make a decision over his future during this month's Tour de France. He has the option to renew with his current team Quickstep-Innergetic. as well as offers on the table from T-Mobile and Dutch outfit Rabobank.
T-Mobile is also interested in the Dutch Time Trial Champion Stef Clement, Stapleton confirmed. The only issue is his contract with current team Bouygues Telecom, which does not end until the end of next year.
