– Sven Erik is a young and talented rider with a great potential. We are happy that he will start his professional career in Team Katusha. We think having him ride near one of the leaders of our team Alexander Kristoff he will get a strong school of cycling and will become an important part of Katusha’s sprinter’s direction. Besides, I am sure, Sven Erik has all chances to become a strong professional rider. From August 1st Bystrøm will begin his training in our team.
