Successful Team Days – Team Vorarlberg Santic is ready for 2020!
Claudio Imhof (SUI), Joeri Stallaert (BEL), Felix Meo (NZL) and Johannes Schinnagel (GER) are switching to Team Vorarlberg Santic!
Earlier this week, the annual team come together took place for the upcoming season. The squad was guest at the partner hotel on Badersee in Grainau at the foot of the Zugspitze (the highest mountain from germany). The focus was on the internal planning process, some race planning details, as well as numerous discussions between the athletes, Staff and the material partners present who presented their product innovations and improvements in an impressive manner.
“Team Spirit towards 2020 was more than noticeable on these very varied days. The team management and all team members agreed in unison that they have a very broad, strong squad at the start. Now it is eager and serious to continue working over the winter. Then we can hope for a similarly successful season as 2019.“
Thomas Kofler – Team Manager
Team 2020 continues to take shape – new, well-known riders back in the squad!
In addition to the ten already announced riders (we informed last week), two riders come first to the team, which had already overstretched the jersey in previous years. Claudio Imhof SUI / 29 years (in 2012 in the Team) from Switzerland and Joeri Stallaert BEL / 28 jears (2018). Two riders with great experience and quality on classic terrain, sprint and individual time trials. Imhof is in the Olympic squad of Tokyo!
Besides the returnees, the strong German allrounder Johannes Schinnagel / 23 years and the young New Zealander Felix Meo / 22 years are new. These two riders also have great potential and the team is happy about the commitment.
The currently 14 man squad will be expanded again to serve the second race program optimally. This is a clear sign in terms of promotion of young talent at Team Vorarlberg Santic, so that continuous further development is possible.
