Former professional Søren Lilholt has joined Glud & Marstrand as their new sports director. The overall responsibilities for Lilholt will be to set the strategy for the team, coordination and to guide the riders with their training. Furthermore, he is going to assist sports director Jannik Skovlund with racing abroad due to his large number of contacts he acquired as an active athlete. The team also announced its hope that through his contacts, Lilholt will be able to secure a couple of extra full time contracts for some of the riders.
Søren Lilholt's professional career lasted from 1986 to 1992 with teams including Histor Sigma, Tulip and System U. He has 20 victories as a professional including the overall victory in Tour de Luxembourg. As a professional he was among the most winning Danish riders of his time, and he rode Tour de France five times, Vuelta a España twice and the Giro d'Italia at once.
As an amateur he became dual road World Champion in 1983 as a junior rider, and was in the Danish team at the World's in 1984. His professional career started with the French team System U as the youngest professional ever at that time.
