Padour is leaving the third league Bauknecht-Author team to join the highest ranked German cycling team. Last year the former junior national champion (2006) topped the general classification of the Czech Cycling Tour, which was also the biggest achievement in his career to date.

“We’ve had a lucky hand with the Czech riders we’ve signed. With Jan Barta and Leopold König we have the current national champion and a Grand Tour stage winner riding for our team. We have seen both cyclists develop from the amateur level to riders who guarantee top results in the biggest races.

We know Frantisek to be an experienced rider with qualities on any terrain. Above all, he is strong in the mountains, which we will use on tours for our classification riders. Of course he will also have the opportunity to ride for himself,” said Ralph Denk, Team Manager of Team NetApp-Endura.

Team NetApp-Endura is heading into the new season with 20 riders. After the first team meeting in December, the season will kick off with a two-week training camp in January on the Spanish island of Mallorca.
