We are convinced that cycling has not seen the full potential yet of what this guy can do. We want to see him get the best out of himself and I hope we’ll see him hit his stride here together with us at UAE.”
Hodeg : “I’m arriving to the team with a lot of desire and ambition. It’s a similar feeling of excitement to when I first started riding bikes. The people I know in the team have spoken very highly about it and I’m thrilled to be a part of it. I’m ready to work hard to achieve great things together here at UAE.”
