Georg Steinhauser has signed a contract with EF Education-Nippo with the 19-year-old set to combine his WorldTour dreams with education next year as he continues his metalwork apprenticeship. 

Steinhauser, who has ridden for the Tirol-KTM Cycling team this year, has enjoyed a highly successful campaign. He finished third at the recent Il Piccolo Lombardia, took second place on GC at the Tour of Bulgaria, claimed a stage win at the Giro Ciclistico della Valle d’Acosta-Mont Blanc, and a second-place on the final stage at the Tour de l’Avenir.

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.
