Michael Carbel has long been part of Bjarne Riis’ project, where he has been a part of the Team Virtu Cycling, which was later to Team Waoo.
The 24-year-old dane was in a single-season in 2018 by the French Team Fortuneo – Samsic, where he was the professional, when the team had the status as Pro Continental, which is ranked at the level just below the World Tour.
Why was the Douglas Ryder is not in doubt, since Bjarne Riis told about the possibilities of signing a contract with the Danish rider.
- He has been on the Pro Continental level before, so he knows what it is about. He is not stupid, and he has the qualities to be able to accomplish amazing things for us. Bjarne came to me and asked if he could be a part of the team, and it was a good opportunity for us. He can bring us good things.

the Role, which was
A dream goes thus true for Michael Carbel. He must, however, do not count on to get a bigger role on the team, and in the first instance, he must act as was, says Douglas Ryder.
- He will be over the moon with us. We are a team that has few of the captains, and we need hjælperyttere as him. Michael is one of the riders, which can help to create success for us. But there will also be a few opportunities where he can get the chance, sounds it from the owner of NTT Pro Cycling.
Michael Carbel has already been equipped with a contract. He has the first day with the team Thursday.
