The 2016 UCI Road Junior World Champion, Jakob Egholm, is suiting up for his rookie season with Hagens Berman Axeon.
“I have followed the team for several years now and have always dreamed of becoming a part of this awesome group of people. I couldn't think of a better place to develop as a cyclist and person.”
The 20-year-old considers himself a versatile rider who can compete in different terrain. “I think it's due to my past as mountain biker where I learned to deal with all kinds of parcours,” said Egholm. “I consider that my strength.”
Looking forward to the upcoming season, Egholm looks to improve his climbing, but still keep his strength as an explosive rider. “I think that would make me a contender in a lot of races as well as being a good domestique for my teammates,” he said. “Hopefully that will bring a lot of success to myself and the Hagens Berman Axeon Team.”
