BORA – hansgrohe strengthens its Performance Team
Following an amicable conclusion to its collaboration with Patxi Vila, BORA – hansgrohe will now be strengthening its team with the addition of Sports Director Jean-Pierre Heynderickx and Coach Hendrik Werner.
“After the departure of Patxi Vila, who had looked after a significant area of responsibility, we had to strengthen our team in some areas. On the technical side, we have been able to reallocate responsibilities internally. However, I am also pleased to have been able to find quality new staff on short notice. With Jean-Pierre Heynderickx, we will have a very experienced Sports Director within our ranks, who brings additional know-how particularly to the Belgian races. Hendrik Werner is a top-level coach, who has already been able to make a name for himself in the international cycling scene. I think that he will fit very well within our team and our coaching philosophy in particular. With both of these new additions, we will be able to strategically reinforce our team, and we now sit in an optimal position ahead of the forthcoming season.” – Ralph Denk, Team Manager
