In Ryan Mullen’s eyes, he is about to link up with the best leadout train in the world, and it’s hard to disagree after Bora-Hansgrohe dipped their toes into the transfer market and signed Danny van Poppel, Shane Archbold and sprinter Sam Bennett for 2022.

Mullen spent four years at Trek-Segafredo and even had a contract extension offer from the American team but when Bennett came calling and approached the 27-year-old, the offer of a new environment and the chance to work with one of the fastest riders in the world was too good to turn down.
