CULT Energy-Stölting Group has signed a one-year contract with the 36 year-old Danish veteran Michael Reihs. The experienced and highly skilled road captain started at Phonak Hearing Systems in 2001 before moving home to continue his professional career at Team Fakta in 2003.


This year, he completed a total of 58 international races and sports director, André Steensen is relieved that Reihs decided to embark another season on he road.


“Including Michael in the 2016 roster was very important to us because he possesses a vast experience while his serenity helps wiping out the natural tension amongst the young riders before and during the races. This year we have used him with great success as road captain because his social skills combined with his good positioning capability in the field enables him to assemble the team near the front and make the the sound tactical decisions when necessary.”


“Even though he’s usually not topping the results, I think that he has had one of his best seasons. This year, he has been able to hit the morning breakaways during the spring campaign and in other races, he has been delivering the captains at the forefront of the peloton going into the finale. Obviously, we are happy to sign him for the team next year and he will be crucial in the development of our talents as well as being our right-hand man on the road."


Michael Reihs is proud to be offered a new contract.


“CULT Energy-Stölting Group was the obvious choice for me. Naturally, riding at this level requires a lot of days on the road and without solid support from the family you can not succeed and they were all for the decision. I’m actually a bit proud having received the offer as I don’t get as many results anymore.  But I still believe that I can help and give something to the team, I'm still top motivated and I train as hard as it takes to remain competitive,” says Michael Reihs and continues:


“It has been a demanding year physically and mentally as we all knew it was going to be. We had a tough spring during the cobblestone campaign and finishing the classic season with Amstel Gold Race and Liege-Bastogne-Liege where we flashed the jersey on a number of occasions. I’m really looking forward to continuing my partnership with Skelde and I’m excited about getting to work with a new bunch of talents in 2016."
