HIS BEST SEASON TO DATE. Focused -with pleasure!- on team goals and work during his Movistar Team career so far, Gregor Mühlberger offered in 2023 his best performance yet on individual roles. No less than three victories were obtained by the affable Austrian: a stage win in the Tour of the Alps, taking a demanding breakaway to fruition in Predazzo, and two ‘solos’, with his second national road race title in Hollenstein plus a stage of the Deutschland-Tour. He was an example of maximising chances -turning into stage-hunting mode in the Tour de France after the DNF of a leader he’s always loyal to, Enric Mas-, who will try in 2024 to always be by the side of his ‘capi’, while not ruling out fresh success.
A REINFORCEMENT FOR THE TOUGHEST RACES. Aged 28, Gregor is currently at the peak of maturity in his professional career, with already six seasons of WorldTour experience on his shoulders. He’s a really talented rider for tough courses, both mountain stages and hilly roads, as well as one to rely on for one-day events. He joined the Movistar Team after a successful 2020, conquering no less than the first post-pandemic stagerace -the Sibiu Tour (2.1), where he was the strongest uphill- and shining on the attack in Mallorca -2nd behind Soler in Andratx- against the riders who are now his team-mates.
FROM SNOW TO ASPHALT. Gregor took up riding bikes really early, at just five years of age, when his dad, Erwin, bought him his first mountain bike. It wasn’t the only sport he practised, as he combined cycling with ski until age 15. He soon made his name into the Central European / U23 calendar with a couple Conti outfits from his home country -already coming close to the Austrian road race title, which he would go on to conquer for the first time in 2017-, and with just 21 years old, he took the leap towards the Bora squad, which was itself going up on their way to the WorldTour. There, he competed at six Grand Tours -including spectacular performances in the 2019 TDF- at took, other than Sibiu, two more wins: the 2017 Rund um Köln and a stage of the 2018 BinckBank Tour.
