It will be refreshing to work in a new environment, with new teammates and new staff. It will be good to be part of a team with a different view on cycling. The team will allow me to grow towards a role as a leader for the Grand Tours, using a gradual approach. With an emphasis on science and technology, they are successful with their philosophy. It will be like a new start which makes me open-minded and very motivated again. This is what I need to become a better rider.
There are a lot of good riders on this team. I will ride for the team. And if I get my chance, I’ll certainly go for it.
