CCC Team has announced the signing of Hungarian time trial champion Attila Valter for 2020.

The rider moves to the WorldTour team after spending a season with the CCC Development Team in 2019, in which he won the ninth stage of the Tour de l'Avenir and took the fourth place at Il Piccolo Lombardia in addition to taking the title of the Hungarian fight against the clock.

"Attila Valter is a rider with enormous potential and we are looking forward to welcoming him to CCC Team where he will have the chance to continue his development as rider," said CCC Team General Manager Jim Ochowicz. "Despite his youth and relative inexperience, Attila has demonstrated his skill and abilities on the bike at the U23 level and we believe he has a big career ahead of him. For this reason, we have decided to graduate Attila from CCC Development Team to the WorldTour team for the 2020 season and accelerate his progression.

"Attila's win at the Tour de l'Avenir was an indication of what he can do and with his climbing and time trialing versatility, Attila already has an excellent foundation on which we will build with the expertise of our performance team. It is particularly exciting to welcome a Hungarian cyclist to CCC team in 2020, a historic year for cycling in Hungary with the start of the Giro d'Italia in Budapest. Hungary is also an important market for our title sponsor, CCC, so we are excited to see Attila stay with CCC-sponsored teams."

Valter is very excited about racing with CCC Team. "Of course, this is a dream come true for me," the Hungarian explained. "Stepping up to the WorldTour after just one season with CCC Development Team makes me extra happy and motivated because it means I'm taking the 'steps' fast, which is always a goal for me. Not only the fact that I will be riding at the highest level, but the fact that I will ride and learn alongside riders like Greg Van Avermaet, Matteo Trentin and Ilnur Zakarin is something I can hardly believe.

"I want to keep progressing in the following years and I hope I can achieve something great with CCC Team in the 2020 season already. I hope to have a consistent season and do my maximum in every race. At this stage, my friend Barnabas Peak and I will be the only Hungarian riders in the WorldTour level, so it's something I can be really proud of. I believe that next year with the Giro d'Italia starting in my country, the cycling culture will change and Hungary will have a bright cycling future ahead."

Valter is the last signing of CCC Team for 2020.
