Rolf Aldag has joined the management of Bora-Hansgrohe, replacing the long-serving Enrico Poitschke as sports director. Aldag arrives at Ralph Denk’s team after spending the 2021 season at Bahrain Victorious, while Poitschke leaves after a decade in situ. 

Poitschke was part of the original German-based Continental team that was founded and managed by Ralph Denk in 2010. The squad moved to Pro Continental status the very next season, and raced their first Grand Tour in 2012 at the Giro d’Italia. By 2017 the Bora-Hansgrohe squad had moved to the top tier of pro cycling and taken stage wins in each of the three Grand Tours, including the first of five Tour de France stage wins by Peter Sagan, in the colours of the German team.

Cyclingnews is the world's leader in English-language coverage of professional cycling. Started in 1995 by University of Newcastle professor Bill Mitchell, the site was one of the first to provide breaking news and results over the internet in English. The site was purchased by Knapp Communications in 1999, and owner Gerard Knapp built it into the definitive voice of pro cycling. Since then, major publishing house Future PLC has owned the site and expanded it to include top features, news, results, photos and tech reporting. The site continues to be the most comprehensive and authoritative English voice in professional cycling.
