Linus Gerdemann is a German climbing specialist and former Tour De France yellow jersey. After riding for Radioshack in 2012 he spent 2013 away from competitive cycling, but kept himself in shape doing a range of different sports. In 2014 Linus is making a return to the pro peleton riding for MTN-Qhubeka. The phenomenal success former team-mate Gerald Ciolek experienced with Qhubeka in 2013 has provided Linus both inspiration and a driving force. Linus will compliment MTN-Qhubeka’s star climber Sergio Pardilla, ably supported Louis Meintjes, Tsgabu Grmay and new signings Merhawi Kudus and Daniel Teklehaimanot. These riders will provide MTN-Qhubeka with a strong multi-pronged attack for stage wins in the mountains and high GC positions in stage races.
“Linus is a great guy and he is very professional, a real team rider.” Former team mate at Team Radioshack-Nissan
