Michael Kolar ready to step up at Tinkoff-Saxo
logotinkoff One of the new members of the Tinkoff-Saxo team, Slovakian Michael Kolar is only 21 years old and is a new face on the World Tour. With four victories on his resume in 2013, the young talent has had a successful 2013 season riding for continental team, Dukla Tencin-Trek:

“I had a lot of special moments in 2013. But the best experience would have to be doing the Tour of Serbia where my old team really worked perfectly as a team and then being in Colorado with Peter (Sagan) seeing for the first time how cycling in the big league works. I had a very strong spring in 2013 and I had my hopes up at the World Championships but a stomach virus put me out of competition and ruined my chances,” says Kolar and adds:

“In general, it was a strange and unsettling autumn in the world of cycling. A lot of teams were closing down and so many cyclists were suddenly out of work so I hope for more stability in 2014.”

“Regarding my own expectations for 2014, my biggest ambition is being able to do what the team wants me to do on the road. And of course, I have a personal goal but I’m keeping that one for myself,” concludes Tinkoff-Saxo’s Michael Kolar.
