Alpecin-Fenix has tapped the talent pool at Hagens Berman Axeon and added American Edward Anderson to its 2021 roster, according to a report by Wielerflirts. Anderson has been with the US-based team, last year with a Continental licence, since 2017.

Anderson had a solid 2019 season, finishing fourth overall in the best young rider classification at the Amgen Tour of California, then fifth in the same honors at the Larry H. Miller Tour of Utah. He charged to a second-place finish on gravel at the Belgian Waffle Ride in San Diego, California, just 10 seconds behind WorldTour rider Peter Stetina. In the abbreviated 2020 season, he had a top 10 finish in the Giro Ciclistico D'Italia.
