Historically Cofidis, Solutions Crédits has had a decidedly deep roster, with many riders and above the average of the rest of the Professional. This year the French, however, have even expanded the rose compared to the usual, deciding to bring to twenty-eight the number of athletes available.
The Danish mountain rider's future employer has signed with Eritrean Natnael Berhane, who among other things has his forces in the same terrain.
The 27-year-old Africans come from the WorldTour Team Dimension Data team on a one-year contract.
"As part of the preparations for next season, I would like to enhance the quality of the squad, so I've been looking for World Tour riders," says Cédric Vasseur, manager of Cofidis.
Natnael Berhane also welcomes the contract with the French procontinental team, despite the fact that he is on the second highest shelf, relatively fixed fixtures in the Tour de France and Vuelta a España.
"Cofidis has been on my radar and I did not hesitate to sign the contract. The team has been performing well throughout the season and ended very strongly and remarkably in the Vuelta, says Natnael Berhane.
His biggest result is the overall victory in the mountainous stage tour of Turkey, which he won in 2013. Jesper Hansen was collected in the same race last year.
On the other hand, Jesper Hansen, who signed a contract with the continental team earlier this year, should not fight the place with Daniel Teklehaimanot.
The 29 mountain riders, who are also from Eritrea, are not allowed to extend their contract with Cofidis, announcing the team in the same ambush.
28-year-old Jesper Hansen has a contract with Cofidis until 2020. Berhane has until the end of 2019.
