Team KATUSHA has announced that Reto Hollenstein joins the team for 2017.

 

The Swiss rider, who is leaving now for the World Championships in Doha (Qatar), where he will represent his country in the road race as well as in the time trial event, was part of the IAM Cycling squad for the last four years. Reto Hollenstein (31) is an excellent all-rounder. In 2016 he finished second in the national time trial championships behind Olympic champion Fabian Cancellara. In the Baloise Tour of Belgium he was the runner-up in the overall classification. After the Tour de France he took a top ten place overall in the Arctic Race of Norway as well.

 

"I am very happy to join Team KATUSHA. This is another step upwards in my career. KATUSHA is a big team, becoming more and more international, and has a lot of good riders. I am delighted to be able to work for Alexander Kristoff, Ilnur Zakarin and many others and to ride their world class bikes. For me this is just a dream coming true. What maybe makes me most happy is that the team was keen to have me. They know they can count on me to work and I will not disappoint them. Of course everybody has personal ambitions but my first focus will be the team. I am happy when the team is happy. My own ambitions are secondary,," said Reto Hollenstein.

 

"The nice thing about Reto is that we can exploit his skills in all kinds of races. Reto has shown in the last years that he is fully dedicated to his employer. Classics, Grand Tours or smaller races, it doesn’t matter to him. The fact that for the last three years IAM Cycling brought Reto to the Tour de France tells enough. You can build on him. Thanks to his good time trial skills he is also able to finish high in smaller stage races. At Team KATUSHA all races are important, so Reto will get his personal chances too. We look forward to embracing him in our group," said Team KATUSHA General Manager Viacheslav Ekimov.
