Erik Fetter and EOLO-KOMETA, two more years together. “We will grow again.”
Erik Fetter and EOLO-KOMETA, two more years together: and there was no better time, and no better place to announce it. On the day of the Great Start in his home town of Budapest, the Hungarian rider binds until 2024 with the team that made him grow up: a sign of the common will to continue on that path made of steps forward and mutual trust, started three years ago and still far from its conclusion.
IVAN BASSO, Sport Manager EOLO-KOMETA Cycling Team: “Confirming a talented young rider who has been with us for many years is an important signal, it means that we are working well. Because the goal of our team is to enhance the talent of our boys respecting the time, to generate future champions and keep them with us. The confirmation of Erik goes exactly in this direction”.
FRAN CONTADOR, General Manager EOLO-KOMETA Cycling Team: “I’m very happy with this announcement, and I’m glad it comes here in Budapest at the start of the Giro. Erik is a guy who came to us three years ago, coming from our Under 23: and his growth path is exactly what we imagine when we think about our project.”
ERIK FETTER: “I’m here in Budapest, I’m about to start the Giro d’Italia: I’m living the biggest thing of my life, and it’s hard to imagine something more. And instead, here comes this announcement to make everything even more beautiful: here, in front of my people. How exciting. EOLO-KOMETA gave me all: it gave me the chance to become a professional cyclist and to live this fairy tale, now I have to give something back to them. Maybe, starting from these days. It was easy to say yes: I immediately understood that they believe in me, and that they want me to grow up to become a great rider. We will grow together”.
