BORA - HANSGROHE
This is an example of a team that has grown season after season since its foundation in 2010, then featuring in the Continental category. First as NetApp, later with the added support of Endura and, since 2014, bearing the name of Bora-Argon 18, Ralph Denk’s team has not ceased to advance in its transit through professional cycling.
The team faces its fifth WorldTour season, with veteran rider Peter Sagan as the team’s main representative. However, recent victories for the German team have come from other sprinters. In 2019, Irish rider Sam Bennett obtained two stage triumphs. German rider Pascal Ackerman, repeated this achievement in La Vuelta’s last edition with victories at Aguilar de Campoo and Madrid.
