History in brief

The emergence of the team came from the elimination by T-Mobile as sponsor of the cycling team at the end of the 2007 season. The German Pastor had a rich history in cycling and Team Telekom began in 1991 as a successor to Team Stuttgart. Some famous riders in the past in the German predecessor of Team Columbia was Udo Bölts, Erik Zabel, Bjarne Riis, Jan Ullrich, Andreas Klöden and Alexander Vinokourov.

After being threatened by German channel ARD and ZDF will no longer broadcast the Tour 2007, was this yet, subject to the following anti-doping case abubt departure would mean. The tour initially seemed to go well, including yellow for young German Linus Gerdemann, but on July 18, Patrik Sinkewitz was caught at a training session on doping.
This was the next big blow for the German team, who actually did leave the station at the Tour. Sponsor of the team gave a chance and wanted to fall in 2010 to serve yet. This changed suddenly when after also Lorenzo Bernucci was arrested and Sinkewitz revealed that doping was used systematically in the team, also in 2006. T-Mobile withdrew and Team Columbia was founded.
