Heinrich Haussler leading TBM at Paris-Roubaix
The monumental “cobblestone classic” and the well-known Paris-Roubaix is the new challenge for the very motivated riders of BAHRAIN MERIDA Team. We have a very strong and motivated Heinrich Hausseler that will be our leader – says sports director Tristan Hoffman – Our riders will have a role for helping and protecting Heino, but we also wish to have one of our riders at the early morning break and to be there for 93 km for the entrance to the cobblestone sections and to fight to the Arenberg (162 km).
Most of our riders already had an joint experience at last years’ Paris – Roubaix what is definitely a good base for us as a team. Borut Božič, Kristijan Koren, Luka Pibernik can really work hard, David Per and Meiyin Wang are our young strong helpers and Ivan Cortina had shown last weekend at Flanders how strong and motivated he is. Paris-Roubaix is his favorite race, so let us all believe that TBM can do a good result at the upcoming Paris-Roubaix. A top 10 result on such unique and hard race would be the first team goal, says Tristan Hoffman.
TBM Lineup: Borut Božić / Luka Pibernik / Ivan Cortina / Heinrich Haussler / David Per / Meiyin Wang / Kristijan Koren
