Teutenberg beats the men with first T-Mobile win

The T-Mobile women have managed to do what the T-Mobile men haven't yet - they have won a race. Ina-Yoko Teutenberg won the final stage of the Geelong Tour, bringing in T-Mobile's first victory of the year. She had finished third and second in the previous two stages, placing fifth in the final GC.

Directeur Sportif Andrzej Bek says, "It's been a good week overall." He claims not to be surprised at Teutenberg's good results, noting that, "We always knew that in Ina we have an ace up our sleeves." He is looking forward to Sunday's World Cup race, reckoning the chances not only for Teutenberg but also for her teammates: "The course is a nice one. There is one 500 metres climb on the course. It is a power climb and should suit Ina. Of course anything can happen, but if it comes down to a sprint we will give her a good lead out and put her in good position. If it unfolds in another way, then we are ready for that also. We have plenty of riders capable of finding their ways into the breaks."
