Gregor Mühlberger

A crucial asset

SEEKING FOR BETTER FORTUNE. The 2021 season could hardly be more difficult for Austrian Gregor Mühlberger. In January, he was almost unable to participate in the Blues’ first training camp in Almería as he was declared a close contact of a covid positive; in April, meningitis sidelined him for many weeks and kept him in a hospital bed; and in August, when he had all but sealed his spot in the La Vuelta team, a crash and injuries in Burgos kept him out for the remainder of the season. And even despite all of that, he was still a factor for some of the Movistar Team’s wins, supporting Pedrero at the Route d’Occitanie. Surely things will be easier for him come 2022!

A REINFORCEMENT FOR THE TOUGHEST RACES. Aged 27, Gregor is currently at the peak of maturity in his professional career, with already five 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. Supported by Patxi Vila, who knows him well and really appreciates his potential, he joins 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 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.
