Gerald Ciolek and Linus Gerdemann will make their debuts for Team Milram next week in the Mallorca Challenge.
The two new team captains, both of whom rode for Team Columbia last season, will be joined by former Gerolsteiner riders Fabian Wegmann and Markus Fothen.
The team will look to win one of the days' races in the five-part race series. Ralf Grabsch, who is making his debut as directeur sportif after a 12-year riding career, said that "We want to go into the race with a good spirit, strong teamwork and an aggressive riding style."
The team will send a total of 14 riders to the race. The Mallorca Challenge is a series of five one-day race, with riders able to ride whichever they choose.
