Team Sunweb are excited to announce the signings of talented duo Tobias Lund Andresen and Gianmarco Garofoli for the 2021 season, with both riders contracted with the team until the end of 2022.
Tobias Lund Andresen (DEN)
Bursting onto the scene in 2019, Lund Andresen finished second at Ronde van Vlaanderen behind his teammate, his first ever international junior race. A few weeks later he would go on to take a resounding solo win at E3 Harelbeke, highlighting his strength and power as a future classics rider that has a fast finish. Having not raced in the opening months of 2020, Lund Andresen had an incredible return to racing after lockdown; not finishing lower than seventh place in any stage or race that he competed in during August. Taking a total of twelve wins in 2020, including the Danish junior road race title, all stages and the overall GC win at Visegrad 4 Juniors, plus the junior European madison title on the track, Lund Andresen is looking forward to continuing his development with Team Sunweb.
Gianmarco Garofoli (ITA)
Garofoli had immediate success on the Italian scene in his first year as a junior in 2019, picking up two podiums before taking a win in only his third race. His string of good results continued on home soil, culminating in a very strong solo win at the Italian national championships; an impressive feat for someone in their first year of junior racing. A good rider when the road goes uphill, Garofoli would further show his abilities on the shorter climbs with success at Trofeo Buffoni before finishing fifth in the road race on the incredibly difficult parcours at the World championships in Yorkshire. Like most, 2020 has seen Garofoli’s racing calendar shortened but since the season restart in August he’s tasted success in two Italian races, alongside several podium places including a silver medal in the Italian national time trial.
