TEAM SUNWEB

Two riders from the Development team of Sunweb will make the step to become stagiaires in the WorldTour team. Max Kanter and Leon Rohde will join the squad from the 1st of August.

The riders come from the team's Development Program, which is designed to give young talents all the support and the tools to get into professional cycling. The two joined the program at the start of the year and have already shown some impressive results: Rohde took the victory at the Bundesliga Düren and Kanter is the U23 national road race champion.

"I'm really pleased that the team have given me the chance to become a stagiaire," said Kanter. "It's going to be a brilliant experience and I'm proud that the team are giving me the chance. I'm really looking forward to racing on a WorldTour level and I hope that I can learn a lot and make another step in my development as a rider."

"This is a real honour and a great opportunity for me to show my strengths," Rohde commented. "We've worked together to achieve some good results in the Development Program so far this season and it's a really good signal that the hard work really does get rewarded."
