The German Tour de France fourth Emanuel Buchmann leads the 27-man squad of Bora-hansgrohe for the year 2020, said the Upper Bavarian team in Kolbermoor.
Buchmann called the Tour de France a clear goal. In addition to the 27-year-old Ravensburger and five new additions, the ambitious team includes classic specialist Maximilian Schachmann and sprinter Pascal Ackermann. Team manager Ralph Denk spoke of the most successful season in "our history," but added in front of about 400 guests on the stage of a sponsor: "But we will not rest on that, we are already looking forward to 2020."
After Buchmann's fourth touring position this season, Bora-hansgrohe wants to attack the overall victory in the biggest cycling race in the world in the coming years. To achieve all this, it needs "the right partners," Denk explained. For this purpose, the extension of the title sponsorship with valve manufacturer hansgrohe until 2021 was announced.
