Anders Damgaard has opted to look for new challenges and therefore he handed in his resignation effective October 31st.
“During the summer Anders told me that he had thoughts about exploring other possibilities, and in our recent conversations he reiterated this wish. I regret this decision, as this means that the team and I have to say goodbye to a strong and popular personality and a valued strategist and sparring partner, but I also have great respect for and understanding of his decision. I owe Anders a warm thanks for his great contribution throughout his years in Riis Cycling, and I hope we can maintain our personal contact in the future,” team owner Bjarne Riis says.
“For me personally it has been three extremely exciting years with the team. It has been eventful and challenging, but first and foremost a great learning process to be part of Riis Cycling, and therefore it is of course with mixed emotions that I have decided to leave my role in the company. But at the same time I felt now was the time to explore new challenges, and I really look forward to this. I know I will miss many of my great colleagues in the team and especially the time spend with the riders and Bjarne at the biggest races. I wish the entire team all the best of luck in the future,” Anders Damgaard says.
