Bob Jungels to strengthen BORA - hansgrohe as of 2023

This year's Tour de France stage winner has signed a multi-year contract and is expected to strengthen the German WorldTeam with his versatility as a rider.

"I am very excited to be riding for BORA - hansgrohe from next season onwards. As a team I feel it's the right fit for me to return to consistent performances on the WorldTour and I look forward to playing a big role in team victories for the coming seasons. I’m sure that I can still develop as a rider and I'm also willing to work hard for it. For me, this change feels like it's the start of something big." - Bob Jungels

"Bob is a very interesting rider. One gets the feeling that he's been in the peloton forever, yet he is just in his prime racing age. He brings an incredible amount of experience, but at the same time also a lot of potential. We also believe that this potential is not yet fully exhausted and we would like to work together with Bob on his development. In terms of rider type, he fits perfectly into our multi-captain strategy. We’d like to continue to add more depth to our squad to make it difficult for our competitors to predict our racing. Bob can certainly play a key role in important races as he is very versatile." - Rolf Aldag, Sports Director
