Bora-hansgrohe has announced the arrival of Rolf Aldag as Sports Director from 2022 and the departure of Enrico Poitschke.

Since having confessed doping use during his time in Team Telekom, Aldag has been active as a sports director in teams like Omega-Pharma-Quick-Step, Dimension Data, Bahrain-Victorious and Canyon-SRAM. "I am very much looking forward to my new role at Bora-hansgrohe and am pleased to see the trust that Ralph Denk has placed in me. The team has been an integral part of the international cycling scene for over a decade and is constantly growing. The reliability of its partners and the long-term thinking of the team management were very important factors in my decision to become part of Bora-hansgrohe.

"Ralph has managed to bring together a very talented group of riders for 2022. Now it's about forming a successful team with these athletes, the sportive management as well as the coaches, which will inspire cycling fans with an attacking riding style. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Enrico, because thanks to his continuous good work in the past, it's now possible for us to tackle new goals at an absolute world class level."

Bora-hansgrohe also announced the departure of Enrico Potschke, after being part of the team since 2009, when it was a Continental team. "Of course, I am disappointed, and the decision came as a surprise to me. I have built up the team together with Ralph Denk over the past ten years and I believe that we have done a very good job together. However, Ralph would like bring new impetus in the future and this decision must be accepted.

"Nevertheless, I will keep the past years in my memories, because despite the high level of commitment that was expected, there were undoubtedly wonderful moments - our first Tour de France appearance with Leopold König, the stage victories in the Giro d'Italia and the Vuelta, and successes in the Tour with Peter, Lennard, Nils, Patrick and Emu. Of course, our victory at Paris-Roubaix in 2018 was outstanding. I am proud that all these successes also bear my signature. Cycling is my passion and we will see in which form I will continue to be connected to it."
