Tiago Machado

“I believe that success relies on people close to you and a good team spirit. I take my strengths out of our team.”

The 28-year old Portuguese climber Tiago Machado will greatly contribute to our line-up. In the season of 2013, he took the mountain jersey at the Tour de Wallonie as well as at the Grand Prix Cycliste de Québec and also ranked inside the top ten at four other races. He reached another six top ten placings during the 2012 season at high-class races, among others a third place at the Tour Down Under. Tiago is not just a great climber, his strengths also lies in time trials. He was Portuguese U23 national time trial champion twice and won the title as an elite rider in 2009. His strengths lies in shorter stage races, as they suit him very well, but he can also be a big help for Leopold König during bigger races or Grand Tours.
