Circus – In addition to the World Tour license, Wanty Gobert has now also taken over three additional riders from CCC. The Czech Jan Hirt and the Germans Jonas Koch and Georg Zimmermann will continue their careers in the Belgian team. While Hirt and Zimmermann are in the spotlight during the current Tour of Spain, Koch is already resting.
The 27-year-old Koch is quite good in one-day races, but also showed himself with a 4th and 8th place in the final rankings of the Tour des Fjords (2016) and the Tour of Norway (2018). In the Tour of Austria he came close to a sprint victory with a streak of four top 4 places. The winner of the mountain jersey in the Tour de la Provence has completed the Tour de Spain and France for the past two seasons and will join Circus-Wanty Gobert until the end of 2021.
Climber Jan Hirt has the Tour of Austria (2016) to his palmares at the age of 29, proving that he is the right wood for long climbs. With six grand tours to his credit, the Czech who stays in Andorra becomes an important pawn for the stage races. Especially in the Tour of Italy he was able to excel with a 12th place in the final classification in 2017 and a 2nd place in a stage over the Mortirolo in last year’s edition but also in the Tour of Switzerland in 2019 with a 5th place. Czech has signed a two-year contract.
While the Tour of Spain for Jan Hirt was disrupted by a crash in the second stage, Georg Zimmermann’s big lap debut went smoothly. The young German could already be admired in the attack on two stages and thus continues the red line throughout his first season as a professional. His attacking spirit and aggressive racing style were almost rewarded with a stage victory in the Ster van Bessèges (2nd). The 23-year-old rider from Augsburg loves tough races and dreams of the German title and a stage victory in the Tour de France. The U23 poles jersey of the 2019 Tour of Austria excelled with two top 15 places at the European championships and a 5th place in the Tour de l’Avenir last year. Georg Zimmermann will join Circus-Wanty Gobert for a period of two years.
In the meantime, Wanty – Gobert has 26 riders for next season and there are two additional places available.
