STEADY PROGRESSION. Juri Hollmann is still one of the youngest members in the Movistar Team despite his two-year first contract with the Blues being already complete (he turned 22 in August 2021). The German is gaining respect and value both inside and outside the team, thanks to his improvements over the hardest classics of the calendar; his great work for the team leaders at successful races like Andalucía or Occitanie; and a great end to the 2021 season -3rd at the Volta a Portugal ITT; close to an overall top-ten finish in the Deutschland Deine Tour-. His talent is starting to show, and so the Blues have trusted him with a new contract that will see him remain with the squad until the end of 2021.
BIG LEAGUES FROM YOUNG AGE. Prior to his signing with the Telefónica-backed squad, Hollmann was part -as a trainee, in the summer of 2019- of another WorldTour team: the now-defunct Katusha outfit. Prior to that, he had completed some nice performances as a junior, including a 4th place in the 2017 Bergen ITT Worlds, just eight seconds short for a medal. A powerhouse for flat courses, tough classics or mixed terrains alike, who is yet to breakthrough in the WT.
RAISED ON THE TRACK. Before heading into a career on the road, Juri Hollmann became one of the best juniors in his generation on the track, with two German national titles: one at the omnium, in 2017, and another one at the team pursuit, in 2016. With Germany always regarded as one of Europe’s top nations in track events, there’s hope that Juri’s abilities will help him shine brightly into the road peloton, too.
