Ina-Yoko Teutenberg has been chosen as the director of the new Trek Factory Racing women's team.

The German is one of the most decorated and renowned women cyclist in history with more than 200 victories. The team thinks her presence in the Women's World Tour is good news for everybody in the sport. "With women’s professional cycling in a continuous fight for equality and respect, having a rider of Teutenberg’s stature return in a head director’s position is precisely what’s needed," said the team in a press release.

"In the past, opportunities like these have been sparse, and women have had little choice but to go back to careers or families they put on hold, but with the growth of professional women’s cycling in the last few years, including the creation of a UCI Women’s WorldTour in 2016 and the UCI taking a more interested and active role in women’s cycling, the chances for legendary role models like Teutenberg to stay in the sport are on the rise."

Teutenberg's palmares includes a record-setting 21 victories in the Tour de l'Aude and 11 stage wins at the Giro Rosa. She also has worked in a temporary directing role at USA Cycling and currently, she co-directs the women's Rally Cycling team in the USA.
