Maximilian Schachmann joins BORA – hansgrohe.

The move from Schachmann is another remarkable step for Ralph Denk and his team. With Ackermann, Buchmann and Schachmann, three of the biggest German talents are now united under the umbrella of the German WorldTeam BORA – hansgrohe. 

“There is not a lot to say about Maximilian’s big potential, he already proved it several times this season. I am super happy that with Ackermann, Buchmann and Schachmann we now have three key riders of German cycling united at BORA – hansgrohe. In our first two WorldTour seasons, people quite often looked at us as the “Sagan-Team”. Of course, Peter is the biggest star of our sport and draws a lot of attention, but in his slipstream our young guys proved this year that BORA – hansgrohe is more than “just” Sagan. This move is also important to me as we want to underline our German roots. We want to be successful in the future, but not only with Peter, also with our German speaking talents. Maximilian has potential on all terrains, yet he will need some time and patience to develop within the team. I am really looking forward to that common path.” – Ralph Denk, Team Manager

“I am really happy about this step. As a German pro, to ride in a German team is perfect. My colleges told me that the team, its structures and the spirit is great. I am really happy to join them for the next two years. How the team has developed the last years is promising, especially for German cycling, and I am happy to become part of this journey. I also think that this highly professional environment will help me to develop as a rider. Now it’s up to me to become part of the BORA – hansgrohe success story with some results in the future.” – Maximilian Schachmann
