Team KATUSHA has announced the signing of an agreement with three-time world time trial champion Tony Martin.

 

German Tony Martin (31) is the perfect prototype of a rider performing on all terrains. The German TT champion excels in a wide variety of classics and in Grand Tours, as well as in other smaller stage races. Martin has an impressive palmares including three world titles, five stage wins in the Tour de France and overall wins in Paris-Nice, Eneco Tour, Tour of Belgium (three times), Tour of Algarve (twice), and the Tour of Beijing (twice).

 

"I am excited to come to this strong team. Team KATUSHA showed last year that it was a winning team and, honestly, I really like the KATUSHA jersey. I will be proud to wear it in 2017 and 2018. Moreover, I also really like their Canyon bikes, and this is important for me as a TT rider. What convinced me the most to make the move was the fact that the team directors and the team manager really believe in me. I will be able to obtain more results than I have had so far. They have convinced me that I can still improve. On the other hand, and like in previous years, if I can help a teammate win, I will be just as happy," said Tony Martin.

 

"Tony Martin is the type of rider we were looking for. His palmares say it all. I am sure with his experience he can also make our team better. Last year we strengthened our team for the classics. Now, we will do this for all kinds of races. Tony’s power and endurance, but most of all his character, match perfectly with our group. I look forward to working with him in the near future," said general manager of Team KATUSHA, Viacheslav Ekimov.
