Contract extension: BORA – hansgrohe and Lennard Kämna continue successful partnership
BORA - hansgrohe has extended the contracts early of no less than three riders from the successful Giro squad. Lennard Kämna, Ben Zwiehoff and Patrick Gamper will continue to race for the German WorldTeam beyond 2023.
"Lennard is definitely an exceptional rider. His talent makes him incredibly versatile, which is of course a very nice situation for us as a team because we can use him in a wide variety of roles. His racing instinct allows him to recognize situations that others don't anticipate and Lenni can make the difference in those moments. He is a real character, has some rough edges and stands up for his opinion, but that is what makes him stand out and that is why he fits so well with us. We will see over the next few years what else is possible in the future. But we will continue to pursue our successful path together, namely taking one step at a time. As for Ben and Patrick, both are riders we can rely on. Ben has his strengths in the mountains, Patrick on the flat and both were important building blocks of our success at the Giro. We appreciate their loyalty to the team and that's why we have extended the contracts of both." - Ralph Denk, Team Manager
"I am very happy to continue with BORA - hansgrohe and to extend my contract. It has already become clear this season that we are thinking and working in the same direction. I am grateful for the opportunities I have been given since 2020 and I think I have been able to convince with some results. We have a lot planned for the future, and I am excited and convinced that together we can achieve great things. This certainly always requires some patience, and above all trust. I feel really taken care of in the BORA - hansgrohe family, and I want to do my part to ensure that we all continue to grow together and hopefully celebrate many successes together in the future." - Lennard Kämna
"It has already been a great season for the team and for me and it is only my second year on the road. I was able to be part of three stage race wins and our Giro d'Italia victory with Jai and the team. Now I'm proud and grateful to continue being part of this great team. The motivation for the future couldn't be greater!" - Ben Zwiehoff
"I am overjoyed to be able to extend with BORA - hansgrohe. The last two years I have been able to develop steadily, and I enjoy the trust of the team and can take the next steps in my career as a rider here. At BORA - hansgrohe I have the best environment that I can imagine. It would be sensational if we could write even more beautiful stories together in the future like our recent Giro victory with Jai. To this end, I will continue to put myself 100% at the service of our team." - Patrick Gamper
