ABOUT Phil Bauhaus

Together with Nikias Arndt and Max Wahlscheid, Phil Bauhaus comes from the new generation of German sprinters. This 22 year old sprint talent from Bocholt joins the team from Bora Argon 18. In the short time he has been a part of the team, Phil already feels comfortable. “Right from the start, everyone from the team has been very friendly and they have made me feel welcome. It gives me the confidence to perform well.”

Last year Bauhaus proved his talent with victories in Rounds of Azerbaijan and Denmark, where he beat sprinters Moreno Hofland and Danielle Bennati. He just missed the podium at the U23 World Championships in Doha. In 2014, at the young age of 19, Phil was in the spotlight after winning two stages at the Tour of Portugal. A result even more impressive was his third place at the German road championships. “No one expected it, but I knew I felt good. I hoped to finish in the top 5 and I came third, just behind the two World Tour riders Andre Greipel and John Degenkolb. Third place was the best possible result that a continental rider could get, achieving this made me really proud.”

The ambition of this rider for next season is clear; “I’m going to work hard to increase my engine and develop more power in a sprint. I’m also looking forward to riding my first Grand Tour. I will help the team leaders and maybe I’ll get my own chance. In the Tour Down Under, I will probably be part of the lead out train for Nikias. During the Abu Dhabi Tour, I hope to show my sprint skills and finish in the top five. When the circumstances are good, I can beat every sprinter. I respect all top sprinters, but I’m not afraid of them. I can’t wait to meet them in a sprint.”
