Bora-hansgrohe has announced the signing of Dutch rider Wilco Kelderman and mountain biker Ben Zwiehoff.

The Dutch rider has shown good General Classification performances that are evident in results like the top-five spots he has taken in races like the Vuelta a España, the Abu Dhabi Tour, the Tour de Pologne, the Criterium du Dauphine and the Giro d'Italia. The rider will make the move after four years in Sunweb.

"I am really looking forward to this new challenge," said Kelderman. "After the first few meetings with the coaches and management team, it became clear to me that this is exactly the right step for me. I quickly gained the confidence that a partnership with Bora-hansgrohe would provide me with new incentives at this stage of my career.

"The entire group - riders, performance team and management – provides the perfect environment for me to put on my best performances, and I'm happy to support the team in its future journeys."

The 26-year-old Zwiehoff will be taking a step from the MTB to the road cycling, and he is considered a very strong climber. "My previous career goal as a mountain biker was always to participate in the Olympic Games," the German rider commented. "But at some point. I realised that with my climbing talent, I may be able to achieve more on the road.

"That's why I am incredibly grateful to Bora-hansgrohe for providing me with this chance. I was already able to meet some of the guys last December in Mallorca. Now I can hardly wait to learn from the team's vast experience and to develop myself further. I am highly motivated to be able to contribute to the team's success as a helper in the mountains. As the biggest bike race in the world, the Tour de France has always been a dream of mine, so let's see if I can one day be a part of it."
