Why Team Sunweb
"The professional structure at this team and their way of working is precisely what I need. I am thrilled to be joining this team, because their successes were brilliant last season and I’m excited to play a part of that for the coming years.”
“In the mountains I want to be of added value and hope to learn a lot from the current GC riders in the team. After a year with bad luck, my first aim will be to come back up to my previous level, then I hope to show my full potential.”
