Ina-Yoko Teutenberg, cycling's most prolific winner in 2009 and 2010, has extended her contract with HTC-Highroad for another two years.
"I still have fun and I'm doing well in lots of bike races, so why would I want to stop?" Teutenberg said. "And I've got a great relationship with the team, so there was no reason to look elsewhere. At the same time, it's very satisfying to be in a position to help out the team's younger riders, giving them advice and guidance and seeing them develop. Next year I'll be aiming to do well in the Spring Classics, and then re-boot later in the season so I can build up again for the World Championships: I think the Danish course will suit me very well."
"Ina is an extremely dedicated and experienced rider who is passionate about her sport, and she's a great example for our young riders," HTC-Highroad Sports Director Ronny Lauke added. "She's also continuing to develop in all sorts of ways, steadily improving her climbing while maintaining her sprinting and winning top Classics like the Tour of Flanders in 2009. The reason why she wants to keep going is simple: she likes riding her bike and once she is riding her bike she wants to beat the others."
Last year alone Teutenberg's haul of 24 races included four stages of the Tour of Italy, three stages in the Tour de L'Aude in France, a stage and the overall of the Redlands Classic in the USA and a World Cup win in China.
