BORA – hansgrohe Sets Grand Tour Ambitions for the 2024 Season

For the 2024 professional cycling season, Primož Roglič and BORA – hansgrohe are uniting with high ambitions for all three cycling Grand Tours including the Tour de France, Giro d’Italia and  the Vuelta a España.

Primož Roglič’s Debut in BORA – hansgrohe Colors

Primož Roglič and BORA – hansgrohe are working intensively on their shared dream of winning the Tour de France. One of the first milestones on the way there is his racing debut in the team’s new look. Primož Roglič will wear the BORA – hansgrohe jersey for the first time in a race early March.

Tour de France Ambitions

BORA – hansgrohe is relying on solid teamwork for the three-week Tour in July. Riders such as Jai Hindley and Aleksandr Vlasov, who have both already finished the world’s biggest race within the top 10, will be able to bring their skills to bear, especially in the decisive high mountains. Powerful support is also available on the flats from riders such as Nico Denz, who is aiming to make his debut at the Tour de France.

Giro d’Italia: Double Leadership and Stage Hunt

The team will tackle the Giro d’Italia with two leaders. Lennard Kämna, a stage winner in all Grand Tours, showed his potential to fight for the overall classification last year. Daniel Martínez, 5th in the 2021 Giro d’Italia, will start as co-leader. Two long time trials will suit both riders, so a top 5 finish in the overall standings is the stated goal. German champion Emanuel Buchmann, as well as Giovanni Aleotti, are set for the Italian Grand Tour as well. The team will also be on the hunt for stages: Sam Welsford has his sights set on the many sprinting opportunities available, and Danny Van Poppel will be able to play to his strengths on the hilly terrain.

Vuelta a España: Tailored Line-Up for Spanish Challenges

The Vuelta a España line-up will be decided as the season progresses. But the long list is already tailored to the Spanish race’s demanding profile. In addition to triple winner Primož Roglič, Jai Hindley, Aleksandr Vlasov, Emanuel Buchmann and Sergio Higuita also have the third Grand Tour of the year in their provisional race program. Just like in Italy, the aim is to finish in the top five in Spain as well.
