Rafal Majka signs with BORA – hansgrohe.

Together with his fellow-countryman Pawel Poljanski, the almost 27-year-old from Poland joins BORA – hansgrohe in 2017. Majka, who signed a two-year agreement, will play an important role regarding the Giro and Tour de France ambitions of the team. After 2014, he won the king of the mountains classification in France for the second time this year. And was also 3rd in the Olympic road race in Rio.

“I always said that we also need to strengthen our roster for the Grand Tours. With Rafal Majka we signed a rider who is able to finish a Grand Tour in the top 5. As an add-on our young, German speaking talents, like Buchmann, Herklotz, Konrad or Mühlberger will take advantage, learn from his experience and improve their performance in order to be able to finish a Grand Tour in the top ten in the future.” – Ralph Denk, Team Manager
