Tiago Machado and Jose Gonçalves renew contracts with Katusha-Alpecin

Tiago Machado and Jose Gonçalves have extended their contracts with Katusha-Alpecin. The riders will stay at the team one and two more years, respectively.

Machado has been in the squad since 2015 and got results like the overall victory in the 2014 Tour of Slovenia, one stage win at the 2010 Cirtcuit Cycliste Sarthe and the 2009 Time Trial Championships of Portugal. The rider has extended his contract until 2018.

"It's been evident in the Tour de France how important he is for us as a team rider. Tiago is always 100% professional and is motivated every single day. You can always rely on him. I'm pleased to have him on the team for another year," said general manager Jose Azevedo.

Gonçalves arrived to Katusha-Alpecin in 2017 and has shown to be a talented rider, which he demonstrated at the Queen Stage and the overall work in the past Ster ZLM Toer and in the 2016 Tour the Turkey, where he topped the GC standings. He renewed his contract until 2019.

"I think José does not yet know what he is capable of. He is an extremely powerful rider. I am very curious about his further development in the team," commented Azevedo.
