Stefan de Bod
Worcester, South Africa
17 November 1996
South African powerhouse Stefan de Bod bolsters our roster for 2023. The Olympian and former African time-trial champion is going into his fifth season in the WorldTour. He will be a valuable asset in hilly classics and time trials. He is already great friends with his new teammates.
Stefan lives in Girona, our Catalan home base, during the racing season. He loves all the places that bike racing takes him, but whenever he has the chance travels back to South Africa, where he can disappear for a bit into the bush on his mountain bike and return home to his family farm for a braai.
