In 2014, the team of Ralph Denk competed in the world's biggest cycling race for the first time. Unforgettable moments, drama and several successes were among the countless stories that have since been written by the riders. Ten years of the Tour de France is a reason to celebrate. And BORA - hansgrohe is celebrating with a special jersey design for the 2023 Tour de France, designed to shine the spotlight on the riders who made history with Ralph Denk.
"Time goes by incredibly fast and this year we are competing in the Tour de France for the tenth time. But the stories we have written over the years remain unforgettable. Taking seventh overall with Leo König in our first appearance. The first stage win with Peter Sagan in 2017, followed shortly by the low point, Peter's disqualification. Two green jerseys. Fourth place overall with Emanuel Buchmann in 2019. The list is long and the memories are incredibly beautiful. Through this jersey, I would like to thank all the riders who wrote these stories with us. Without them, none of this would have been possible. But my thanks also go to ASO. They gave us a wildcard three times in a row as a second division team and thereby contributed significantly to our development. Just like our loyal sponsors who have accompanied us along the way. I definitely hope that we can continue to create special moments at the world's biggest cycling race this year, and in the future, and that we inspire fans with our passion." - Ralph Denk, Team
