Stefan de Bod


Worcester, South Africa


17 November 1996



South African powerhouse Stefan de Bod bolsters our roster. The Olympian and former African time-trial champion is going into his sixth season in the WorldTour. He is a valuable asset in hilly classics and time trials. Great friends with his teammates, Stefan is always good for a laugh in the bus.

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.
