The T-Mobile team is working with Unicef to provide funds for Schools in Africa, and the lion's share of its contribution from last season was scored by Ina Yoko Teutenberg. She won 12 UCI ranked races, and for each win the team donated 3,000 Euros.
"This engagement was a motivation for the whole year for me and the whole team to win races," she told www.t-mobile-team.com. "When I stood on top of the podium at my first race in Australia, we said 3000 Euros are now going to Africa. That was a good feeling."
The 32 year-old hopes to keep up the good works this season. "I assume that I will have several wins. We have a lot of talent in the team this year, so that many riders can and will win. But for the project, it's not important which of us wins. I think we'll be able to bring in twice as often to stand on the podium."
