BORA-Hansgrohe brought five new drivers to accompany Peter Sagan in the 2020 racing season. The last rider they managed to recruit was Patrick Gamper from Austria.
Gamper himself is still 22 years old. For him, joining BORA-Hansgrohe was like a dream come true. Because, Gamper previously raced for the Continental KTM Cycling Team continental team. Gamper will be the 27th driver in the BORA-hansgrohe team for the 2020 season.
“Moving to (team) WorldTour has been an amazing surprise for me. I am even more excited because I joined the squad of my dreams, namely BORA-Hansgrohe, “Gamper said on the team’s official website.
Gamper became the fifth Austrian driver of the BORA-Hansgrohe team. Previously, the German team had signed Felix Großschartner, Gregor Mühlberger, Lukas Pöstlberger and Patrick Konrad.
The presence of fellow countrymen is predicted to accelerate the process of Gamper’s adaptation with the team. BORA-Hansgrohe will give time, while encouraging Gamper to grow.
