T-mobile tops in New Zealand

By Susan Westemeyer

The women's T-Mobile Team continues to dominate the Trust House Women's Tour in New Zealand, winning the first two stages. Ina-Yoko Teutenberg won the first stage and was able to defend her leader's jersey as teammate Oenone Wood won the second stage.

Teutenberg won the sprint in a 10-woman strong breakaway group in the first stage, a sprint prepared by Judith Arndt, who finished sixth. "It was a very windy day today. Judith was very strong and did all the work for me in the escape," Teutenberg said on the team's website, t-mobile-team.com.

On Thursday, it was Teutenberg who prepared the sprint for her teammate Wood. "The team rode a very strong finale in the last few kilometres and so I didn't have to do anything more than hold on and cross the finish line," said Wood about her first win in magenta.

The women are now leading in the T-Mobile internal battle of the sexes, with four season wins against only one for the men's team.
