New apparel partner for BORA - hansgrohe: Raubling-based racing team to compete in Le Col from 2022

With Le Col, BORA - hansgrohe has brought on board a partner whose strengths lie primarily in the area of performance. Through experience outside of cycling, for instance with McLaren, it is hoped that they will set a new benchmark together, particularly in the area of aerodynamics. Designs and further details will be presented at a later date.

"I am very happy to have found a performance partner in Le Col, who shares our passion for the sport. Yanto Barker was a rider himself, and right from our first conversation, we found ourselves to be on the same wavelength. He understands exactly what is necessary to be successful in modern cycling and is able to implement feedback from the riders very well with his team. We hope to set a new benchmark together, most notably in terms of aerodynamics and performance, as this area has become increasingly important over the recent years. Le Col's resources, know-how and experience are highly promising here and we are very much looking forward to working together." - Ralph Denk, Team Manager

“Over the past year, the Le Col team and I have spent long hours working on initial designs tailoring for the BORA - hansgrohe team. We’re incredibly excited to be back in the UCI WorldTour with BORA - hansgrohe, a team we have admired and aspired to be working with for a long time. We are honoured to be working with some of the greatest riders in the world and especially looking forward to providing their performance cycling kit for the coming season.” – Yanto Barker, founder of Le Col
