Third place at the German national championships U23, 6th place at Rund um Köln and 7th place at the opening stage of the Deutschland Tour. It could be continued if it comes to good results from Aaron Grosser in 2018. He is a highly promising talent in German cycling and from 2019 he comes from team Sauerland to join BIKE AID. Nikodemus Holler and Lucas Carstensen are already the most successful riders of all the German Continental Teams. But the increased success in 2018 results also from the unique team spirit and the broad roster. Paired with the high-quality calendar a good environment for the development of a talented rider is set.
"With Aaron Grosser, another top sprinter will come to us, who together with Lucas Carstensen will be the leaders in the sprint-train. We are confident that Aaron will be able to take the next step in his development with us and will be constantly demonstrating his skills in the highest level races. The support of the team can be sure", says Timo Schäfer - one of the two team managers at BIKE AID.
The 22-year-old Grosser from Hamm in Germany is looking forward to his new role and emphasizes: "I have considered this step very well and an important role in my decision has also played the very positive development of the team over the last few years. You can see that at BIKE AID a lot has been created and the team has an enormous spirit. Also, being in the team with such experienced riders like Nikodemus Holler, I expect a lot for my future development"
Aaron Grosser is the first new siging that BIKE AID announces for 2019. In the next few weeks, a few surprises will follow, which will further underline the ambitions of the team for 2019.
"We have delivered a dream of a season in 2018 - as a continental team almost impossible to do better. But we want to continue to use this positive trend and have strengthened ourselves very particular. Our focus is still on the sprint and lead-out train and we want to set ourselves up even more broad", Matthias Schnapka concludes.
