Jonas Koch has been announced as the latest rider to sign for CCC Team. The German rider completes a 24-rider roster for the 2019 season.

Although the initial idea of CCC Team was to keep the roster with 23 riders, Koch has been announced as the last signing of the season for the squad. "We are pleased to welcome Jonas Koch to CCC Team," said General Manager Jim Ochowicz.

"Initially, we planned on maintaining our roster of 23 riders but we have a busy race program ahead so 24 riders will afford us some more flexibility when it comes to race rosters. Jonas was already on our radar, having spent the last two years with CCC Sprandi Polkowice, and he managed some solid results in 2018."

Koch is a 25-year-old rider that makes the step up to the WorldTour with the team after spending the last two seasons at CCC Sprandi Polkowice. "At 25-years-old, Jonas is young and will have the opportunity to develop further with CCC Team," Ochowicz added.

"Jonas' top ten results at Prudential RideLondon-Surrey Classic, Brussels Cycling Classic, Handzame Classic, and the Tour of Norway last year are signs of his potential so we are excited to see what Jonas can do with us."

The German rider is excited about joining CCC Team. "It has always been my dream to ride in such a great team," he explained. "I am very thankful and super motivated for this opportunity with CCC Team. There are so many people involved in this almost lifelong process that deserve a huge thank you, especially Piotr Kosmala and Piotr Wadecki who have supported me the whole time as a pro cyclist.

"My main goal is to integrate well in the team and do a good job for my teammates. I want to support our team captains with everything I have and want to demonstrate my abilities in smaller races as well."
