And the riders are ..............
Thanks everybody for the support the past few weeks!
We are fortunate to have two great sprinters in our team; Marcel Kittel and John Degenkolb. Many peope think it is impossible to have two sprinters at the Tour de France, but we know this is the perfect combination for us. Marcel and John are good friends and have known each other for a long time. They play on each other strengths and need each other to achieve their goals. See what they have to say about their cooperation.
"Today is a dream come true," said Marcel after the finish. We've been very eager to win a stage in this Tour de France. Starting in the winter, we prepared ourselves for this, and to win the first stage today and wear the yellow jersey tomorrow is just unbelievable.
