The year of the rainbow starts for BORA – hansgrohe.
Besides the UCI World Champions jersey of Peter Sagan, the team reveals three national Champions jerseys: Rafal Majka (Pol), José Mendes (Por) and Juraj Sagan (Svk). First pictures of all riders are available to download at the new web domain of the team, www.bora-hansgrohe.com.
Like usual, the rainbow is the well-known key visual of the official World Champions jersey. Next to this, the logos of the team’s main sponsor, BORA and the title sponsor, hansgrohe are in the centre of attention in the 2017 edition of the jersey. As a little surprise Peter Sagan’s own logo is represented on the backside of the jersey – a tribute to the UCI double World Champion.
“Obviously, it is a special moment in the life of a team manager to present a World Champions jersey. I am very proud and thankful that I am awarded this honour now. Peter is once again the “eye catcher” in the peloton, this is also important for our sponsors. We decided to put Peter’s own logo on the backside of the jersey as a special “thank you” for his outstanding performances the last years. But I must admit, that I am also very proud to have three national Champions in my team. At some races, there will be more white than black in our line-ups.” – Ralph Denk, Team Manager
“I am proud to wear again the rainbow jersey, now in the lights of BORA – hansgrohe. But with the new year also the records start from zero again, now again hard work will be the basis for success. With my new team, I am sure, we are on track so far.” – Peter Sagan, double UCI World Champion
