The Norwegian sprinter/puncheur Sondre Holst Enger has signed a one-year contract with Riwal Readynez Cycling Team for the 2020 season. Thus Sondre returns to a Scandinavian team after having been riding most recently for Israel Cycling Academy.
”I have good memories from Denmark. It’s a beautiful country where me and my family used to go on vacation in my childhood, so I’m looking forward to ride for a Danish team”, says Sondre Holst Enger.
”It seems like a very good team. They have much of the same mentality as we do in Norway, and the atmosphere seems to be fun and relaxed. They seem to have good experience in general, and I’m looking much forward to meeting the guys.”
Sondre became professional at the age of 20 in 2014 with the Swiss IAM Cycling and rode the Tour de France in 2016 for the then WorldTour team, where he finished top 10 on four sprint stages - best being a third place behind Peter Sagan and Alexander Kristoff, showing his great durability and strength on smaller climbs.
“I believe I can get even better than in 2016, because I’m entering my best year’s in terms of physiology. I had a bit of a bad year in 2017 and am working on getting back to that level step by step. My big goal is to get back to the Tour de France, so I’m very motivated to return to my best and I think it’s the perfect place to do it at Riwal Readynez Cycling Team”, ends Sondre Holst Enger.
