“Most of all, he really loves what he does, and for me that is the key to success. With him, we will have the opportunity to really leave our mark in major competitions. Primo knows that he has joined a good line and is fully aware of the potential of his teammates in the future.”
In 2023, including jerseys and team time trials, he will have a total of 20 victories, nearly eighty during his career. He has scored 74 of them as a jumbo driver.
“However, changing the team is completely new for me, but I’m still really looking forward to working together. We met years ago, and although we couldn’t come to an agreement, we parted in good mood. The deciding factor now is that we think very similarly in this sport, and they particularly insisted on me.”– Tell RoglicWho signed a two-year contract with Bora.
