2019 saw Florian make the transition from the Development program to the Men’s program in March, where he quickly found himself competing in some of the biggest World Tour races in the calendar.
Florian used to be a footballer but switched to cycling at around the age of ten and he soon started racing on two wheels. Falling in love with the sport for its competitiveness but also the simplicity of being able to go out and explore new places on his bike, Florian jokingly admits that he doesn’t always love it, mainly if he is out training when the weather is atrocious.
Driven by always seeing improvements, the calm and open-minded German feels at home within the team’s structure.
When he’s off the bike, you can find Florian relaxing by either reading books or playing the PlayStation with friends, with FIFA being his favourite game.
