Fernandez signs on as Phonak DS

Just a few days after appointing a new team manager, John Lelangue, Phonak has announced that 48 year old Juan Fernandez will be its new directeur sportif, joining fellow directors Jacques Michaud and René Savary. The pair replace Urs Freuler and Alvaro Pino, who resigned from their positions recently.

Fernandez, a former professional cyclist, started as a directeur sportif with Clas Cajastur (1989-1994), and went on to direct Mapei (1995-1996), Festina (1999-2001) and Coast (2002).

Phonak will hold its first training camp of the season in Mallorca from January 10-20.
