Tinkoff-Saxo extends with six current team riders, as Jesper Hansen, Michael Kolar, Pawel Poljanski, Ivan Rovny, Nikolay Trusov and Jay McCarthy will all be a part of the team’s 2016 roster. As existing riders, this group featuring several young talents has contributed to the team showing high dedication, while further extensions will be announced during the second half of August.
“These riders have all contributed to the greater good of the team during the season and several of them are promising talents”, evaluates Steven de Jongh, Head Sports Director of Tinkoff-Saxo.
“Together with the 14 strong group of riders that already had contracts for 2016, Hansen, Kolar, Poljanski, Rovny, Trusov and McCarthy have indeed earned a place on Tinkoff-Saxo. We’ve seen the progress of the younger riders that we expected and the more experienced guys have obviously worked in a committed and keen way to meet our ambitions. These six guys will all play an important part in meeting the next season’s goals, as supporting riders for Alberto, Rafal and Peter and they will likely get their own chance at some stage”, comments de Jongh before adding:
“Our philosophy and approach are essential to our performance as a team. The camaraderie is very important for us to keep. It requires a stable group of guys that know each other, and with these six extensions we ensure a well-founded base for 2016”

Jesper Hansen, 24, will embark on his third year as a pro on Tinkoff-Saxo. The young climber has taken swift steps and his progress culminated with the overall victory at Tour of Norway, where the Dane captured a splendid solo win along the way.
Michael Kolar, 22, is equally set to start his third year as a pro on Tinkoff-Saxo. The fast Slovakian has on several occasions shown that he holds true speed, when it comes to lead-outs and as the tip of the spear in a sprint. Multiple top-ten finishes and a stage win at Tour of Slovakia in 2015 bode well for the coming season.
Pawel Poljanski, 25, has been a part of Tinkoff-Saxo since August 2013, where the Polish rider joined, first as a stagiaire. Since, Poljanski has made certain progress, while supporting the team captains at crucial points during the races.
Ivan Rovny, 27, has contributed with steadfast and strong support since the beginning of 2014 and has seen extended action as part of the teams Grand Tour squads. Latest, the Russian offered vital backing during Tinkoff-Saxo’s overall win at Giro d’Italia.
Nikolay Trusov, 30, will equally commence his third season on Tinkoff-Saxo. The experienced Russian defines sturdy power and has played a key role in lead-outs and during intense racing, where the team has taken to the front of the field in the fight for positioning.
Jay McCarthy, 22, first joined Tinkoff-Saxo in the autumn of 2013 as stagiaire. After two seasons with constant improvement, Australian rider McCarthy will ride his third full season for Tinkoff-Saxo in 2016. His ability to climb and ride punchy finales has secured him a place on the overall podium at Tour of Turkey in 2015.
Further extensions as well as new acquisitions will be announced during the second half of August.
