BORA–hansgrohe unveils Vuelta 2017 line-up
BORA-hansgrohe Team (Spain) – Rafal Majka will be the team leader supported by strong climbers like Buchmann, Konrad and Poljanski. Michael Schwarzmann will be BORA – hansgrohe’s men for the sprints. Leo König will not take part in the Vuelta.

“I think we have a well-balanced squad to support Rafal but also to go for stage wins. Rafal will be our GC leader with the goal to finish in the top five. But we also want to win a stage, and I think there will be chances for Buchmann and Konrad in some stages.” – Ralph Denk, Team Manager

“After his long-lasting knee irritation, Leo feels better now. He had his first race in San Sebastian, but we think he is not ready yet for a three-week tour, the intensity for his knee could be too high. To not take any risk for his long-term perspectives he won’t race the Vuelta.” – Jan-Niklas Droste, Team Doctor


Cesare Benedetti (Ita), Emanuel Buchmann (Ger), Michael Kolar (Svk), Patrick Konrad (Aut), Rafal Majka (Pol), Christoph Pfingsten (Ger), Pawel Poljanski (Pol), Andreas Schillinger (Ger), Michael Schwarzmann (Ger).
