Cesare Benedetti will ride for BORA – ARGON 18 also in the upcoming season. With his spectacular riding in recent weeks, the 28-year-old fought hard for his place in the next year’s team of manager Ralph Denk. Thus, Benedetti will be one of four riders next year who have been with the team since its founding in the year of 2010.

"Cesare fought hard in recent weeks for a new contract. After his great appearance at Lombardia, where he scored the best monument result in our team’s history, we established an extra spot for him in the team. Certainly, this is a rather extraordinary decision, but such a fighting spirit needs to be rewarded. I thank our sponsors who agreed immediately to this plan", says Ralph Denk, Team Manager of BORA – ARGON 18.

Cesare Benedetti won the team time trial with BORA – ARGON 18 in his home race, the Giro del Trentino. He took over the leader's jersey after the first stage and won the sprint jersey at the end of the tour. Since the Tour of Alberta, Benedetti rode 1,100 kilometers in lead groups in 15 consecutive race days. He was awarded with the jersey of the most active rider in the Canadian tour. At Il Lombardia Benedetti again rode 180 kilometers in front, before he finished in 14th place in Como.

Shane Archbold (26, NZL), Jan Barta (30, CZE), Phil Bauhaus (21, GER), Cesare Benedetti (28, ITA), Sam Bennett (24, IRL), Emanuel Buchmann (22, GER), Zak Dempster (28, AUS), Silvio Herklotz (21, GER), Bartosz Huzarski (34, POL), Patrick Konrad (24, AUT), Ralf Matzka (26, GER), Jose Mendes (30, POR), Gregor Mühlberger (21, AUT), Dominik Nerz (26, GER), Christoph Pfingsten (27, GER), Lukas Pöstlberger (23, AUT), Andreas Schillinger (32, GER), Michael Schwarzmann (24, GER), Rüdiger Selig (26, GER), Scott Thwaites (25, GBR), Paul Voss (29, GER)
