Women's team Getränke Hoffmann stops

By Susan Westemeyer

Team Getränke Hoffmann will stop at the end of the year, team manager Wolfgang Schreiner has said. The German women's team existed for only one year, as the sponsor decided to end its engagement.

"It is bitter, but this development follows the current trend in cycling. The many negative headlines are destroying everything," said Sporting Director Torsten Wittig. Most of the team's riders have already signed with other teams. The only remaining riders are Steffi Pohl and Virginia Hennig. Pohl has had a number of successes in 'cross races, winning recently in Overijse.

The team did not respond to Cyclingnews' request for a comment.
