Contract extension with Team Katusha Alpecin for 2018
I’m very happy to announce that I will be riding for Katusha Alpecin for the 2018 season.
I thank the team and its management for this renewal of trust and I look forward to giving my best again for my team and leaders.
Here below the official team press release.
Team KATUSHA ALPECIN are happy to announce the contract extensions for Reto Hollenstein and Jhonatan Restrepo, both for one year through 2018.
Swiss rider Reto Hollenstein, age 31, came to the team in 2017, and has had a successful first year riding support for several leaders in the team, most notably his recent work in the Tour de France. Hollenstein’s dependability makes his efforts as precise as a fine Swiss clock. He placed 2nd in the Swiss National Championships (ITT) for both 2015 and 2016 and was also second on the GC in 2015 for the Baloise Belgium Tour.
“Reto was a real stroke of luck for the team,” said general manager José Azevedo. “Because of his strength, he has already taken on very important support roles for the team. Whether it is the spring classics or stage races, you can absolutely count on Reto.” (…)
