What's Cool In Road Cycling

Morton Bennekou Joins from Danish Federation

Team Giant-Alpecin is expanding its coaching staff with the addition of Morten Bennekou (DEN). Bennekou has spent the past 13 years at the Danish cycling federation, as a coach and head of development for road cycling.

“We are delighted to welcome Morten on board as a coach,” said Rudi Kemna (NED), head coach. “We sought him out because of his experience in the development of riders in addition to his skills as a trainer. He has had great success in Denmark, bringing many riders to the pro level and building a strong and stable structure inside the federation. We are happy that he has chosen to join us as the next step in his career. His way of thinking is a good fit with ours.”

“I’ve enjoyed my time with the Danish cycling federation,” said Bennekou. “I’ve had good experiences and seen some good results, and we’ve made solid progress with cycling in Denmark. I felt comfortable at the federation, but when the opportunity arose with Team Giant-Alpecin I was ready to take on a new challenge in my own career as coach. I wouldn’t say yes to just any team, but I knew this team relatively well, as we had worked together with some Danish riders and I had participated in a training camp, where we had good big-picture conversations about rider and team development. I decided to join the team because this organization shares my outlook and I have good relationships with everyone on the team.”
