history

1991-1995

thatTeam Telekom developed 1991 from the team Stuttgart. Participated from the later route winner team of Riis and Ullrich from the beginning only Udo Bölts . After the first season the former Belgian wheel professional walter Godefroot took over the post of the sporty leader. The first victories forthe team at all brought Udo in Bölts, which won surprisingly the king stage of the giro D' Italia 1992. In July Telekom participated for the first time] in the route de France and could with Jens Heppner 10. Place in the total valuation reach.

1993, in the third year of its existence,the team Telekom had obligated meanwhile most German point drivers. In particular Olaf Ludwig, who had come from the crew Panasonic, provided for victories, so also with the route de France, where he on the 14. Stage first route stage success for Telekom reached. In Octoberbecame Ludwig with the road WM of third behind the young Lance Armstrong and Miguel Indurain.

1994 won Olaf Ludwig the German classical author round around the Henninger tower and could thereby speculations over a door of the sponsor Telekom after the before weak spring terminate. In the autumnreached young Eric Zabel with Paris route the first Worldcup - victory for him and his team.

1995 were surprisingly not invited Telekom despite tidy spring results to the route de France. Only after heated negotiations a trunk team became certified. Promptly Eric Zabel with two Sprinterfolgen justified thosewas late permission of the team for the most important cycle racing event of the world.

1996/1997

the season ago for the first time 1996 were bought with the Dane Bjarne Riis a genuine star, that had become in the year before third with the route. The investment made itself immediately paid. Riiswith the route Miguel Indurain could strike and as a first Dane in Paris in yellow bring the five times winner in. Beyond that its young team colleague won January Ullrich with his route premiere the last time driving and came on the 2. Rank of the Gesamtklassements. Eric Zabel reached twoStage-wins and could thereby the Green the leotard conquer. Thus the triumph of the Telekom troop was perfect. In the postwar history of the route there was only another team, which could reserve the first two seats:La Vie Claire 1985 and 1986 with Berne pool of broadcasting corporations Hinault and Greg LeMond.

In Germany the strength of the Telekom team however only one year was correctly taken later to the knowledge. After Riis was started into the route after a strong spring first as a captain, soon the strongly driving Ullrich transferred the guidance in the team and in running. That23-Jährige won the route de France as first Germans at all. Zabel again got stage-wins and the desired Sprintertrikot. Also in the crew valuation Telekom lay completely in front. The interest of the German public in the cycle racing, almost exploding after the route victory Ullrichs, closed the Sponsoring of Telekomone most effective German sport history. At the same time now however also a requirement was waked, at which Telekom had to measure in the future.

1998-2002

after the two route victories 1996 and 1997 belonged the team Telekom to the best crews of the cycle racing. This level could Telekom in the following years despite many problems hold, without having the route winner in their rows however again. The team was aligned clearly to the double head with Ullrich and Zabel.

January Ullrich achieved further second places with Telekom during the France round travel (1998, 2000, 2001), the Vuelta A España won 1999, the road running of the olympic plays in Sydney 2000, time-drives - WM 1999 and 2001 - and stayed nevertheless behind expectations. Eric Zabel developed to a sample at Konstanz, got sixIf leotards of the route in consequence become green, won four times with Milan San Remo (1997/98, 2000/01), got themselves and the guidance in the world rank list to the Weltcup Gesamtsieg.

2003

the phase of relative success Ullrichs became in the spring by the successively taking place injury, alcohol travel and positive Dopingprobe Januaryand summer 2002 terminates. Telekom separated finally from its superstar and decided - in the midst of of rumors around the completion of the Sponsorings - a strategy change: Now no more all should be set on a captain, but different drivers their chance get. In addition a row becameof international star such as Santiago Botero, Paolo Savoldelli and Cadel Evans obligates, which could not fulfill expectations set into her however for different reasons. Apart from numerous other victories Alexander Winokurow won two stages with the route and reached third total rank. Furthermore wonthree different drivers from the team ever a Weltcuprennen.

All these victories were pushed in the public however by the grandiosen comeback January Ullrichs at the team Bianchi into the background. Thereupon negotiated the guidance team Telekom with the German wheel star and could, there Bianchi nonedurable financing Ullrichs brought, finally in the autumn 2003 the return January Ullrichs to the team Telekom reports, which firmiert in the future under the name of the subsidiary company T-mobile.

2004

in the first year as „T-mobile team “were the Weltcuperfolg of Steffen Wesemann during the Flanders round travel and Ullrichs profit of the route de Suisse the namhaftesten victories. Besides Eric Zabel provided for numerous second places, among other things e.g. with Milan San Remo and the Strassenrad WM. With the route de France reached Andreas Klöden and January Ullrich the outstanding places 2 and 4, whichdue to the circumstances however rather as failure one rated. In one season, in which the remarkable victories RSR remained, „the T-mobile team reached “due to its balance however a rare tripolarizes: The crew won the team valuation of the route de France, those of the wheel Worldcup and terminated thoseSeason at the first place of the team world rank list.

2005

with the German championship 2005

in the year 2005 tore an impressing victory series. For the first time since 1993 the crew could decide not the German championship for itself and had the title to the outsider Gerald Ciolek deliver. With the route de France got itself „the T-mobile team “the victory in the crew valuation. Three stage-wins by Alexander Winokurow and Giuseppe Guerini as well as the third place of January Ullrich and the fifth of Alexander Winokurow in the total valuation carried just as tooa positive total result for the team.
