2018 will see the tenth season of WorldTour Team KATUSHA. The last two seasons the team became more than a professional cycling team; it became a brand. With the support of its partner ALPECIN the team transformed further from a predominately national team to a solid international project.
The 26 riders of the 2018 Swiss squad, including leaders Ilnur Zakarin, Marcel Kittel and Tony Martin, are preparing for their first training camp. The riders will meet and train in Mallorca (Spain) from December 3rd until December 15th. On December 9th the 2018 team will be presented to sponsors and press in Robinson Club Cala Serena (Mallorca, Spain).
