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,

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.
