World's Top Team Confirmed for Wellington

Wellington area, 7 - 11 March

 

T-Mobile team named for Tour

Organisers of the Trust House Women’s Cycling Tour in March have received an early Christmas present with confirmation that leading European professional team, T-Mobile from Germany, will be on the start line.

Fresh from a hugely successful full season of international competition the T-Mobile women’s team is aiming even higher in 2007 with a world-class roster of eleven riders from six nations.

We have already decided who will ride in New Zealand”, team manager Kristy Scrymgeour said.

We already have five riders living and training down under in our off-season, four in Australia and one in New Zealand, and we will bring Judith Arndt over as the sixth rider.

We want to start the season well, and I think we have a strong team in New Zealand and Australia to do that,” said Scrymgeour

For the 2007 team roster, leading riders Ina-Yoko Teutenberg and former World Champion Judith Arndt stay with the team. They will be joined by Oenone Wood, Linda Villumsen, Kate Bates, and Alex Rhodes.

Australian Oenone Wood is the biggest new name on the roster and though she is still relatively new to cycling she has already achieved so much. She is a two-time World Cup Series winner and former Australian National Champion; Linda Villumsen is a European and Danish Champion; Track specialist Kate Bates is a current Australian National Champion and Commonwealth Games Gold Medallist; and making up the team is young Australian Alex Rhodes, who has fully recovered from serious injury incurred in a major accident in Germany in July 2005, which claimed the life of team-mate Amy Gillett

We have strengthened the squad considerably and I’m convinced that we’ll be up there with the world’s best teams and we will win many races”, team coach Petra Rossner said.

The team was strong in 2006 and we intend to follow up and expand on that.  We want to make our mark on the stage-races like the Tour of New Zealand and our goal is simple - to win as often as possible,” Rossner said.

Race Director Jorge Sandoval is thrilled with the news.

"Having the team currently considered to be one of the best in the world racing here in New Zealand again is great for the sport and for our event," he said.

"The Trust House 2007 Tour is already looking like being bigger and better than last year, and that's fantastic for everyone involved. The better we can make it, the more international exposure both the race, and New Zealand, will receive. It's going to be big."

Entries have also now been received from the German National team. 

The Trust House Women’s Tour of New Zealand takes place from 7 to 11 March 2007.
