WELCOME STEIMLE, TOWNSEND & AZPARREN
27-year-old all-rounder, Jannik Steimle, Former Irish National Champion Rory Townsend and San Sebastián's Xabier Mikel Azparren are set to bolster the Q36.5 Pro Cycling Team lineup.
Rory's accolades are vast, from winning three rounds of the British Cycling Elite road series in 2019 to standing tall on international stages with podium finishes at the Heistse Pijl and the Classic Loire-Atlantique. His triumphs at the Tour de la Mirabelle in 2021 and the iconic win of the Irish Elite National Champion title in 2022 further solidify his stature in the sport.
"From the outset, Q36.5 Pro Cycling Team stood out to me. Their victories weren't just achievements; they were a testament to their relentless drive. When Doug Ryder and Alex Sans Vega reached out to me about 2024, the synergy was palpable."
After several seasons at the WorldTour level and having achieved six victories as a professional, including GC wins at both the Tour de Slovaquie and Oberösterreichrundfahrt, Steimle brings a wealth of talent and experience to the team.
