Jan Hirt will return to the CCC family in 2019 after racing with CCC Sprandi Polkowice from 2015 to 2017. The Czech rider is considered one of the most reliable domestiques and at the same time, is more than capable of winning when given the chance. Jan will be one of the team key players at stage races in 2019, particularly in the mountains.

Hirt showed his potential throughout the last 12 months by finishing second in Giro d’Italia and Tour of the Alps stages and was fifth in the General Classification at the Tour de Suisse.

I knew I wanted to be a professional cyclist when…

I started to ride my bike at the age of 14. My brother used to practice triathlon and I joined him on his bike rides. At the same time, I started to watch the Tour de France and became more and more fascinated with riding in the mountains.

My greatest racing memory is…

My first Giro d’Italia in 2017. Before that I’d never thought that I’d be a rider in Grand Tours. It was a super nice debut with a really good last week and I finished 12th overall

The race I dream of winning is…

The Tour de France is the biggest goal for me. I really want to win that race, but I think that winning a stage at each Grand Tour is a more realistic dream.

If I wasn’t a professional cyclist, I would be…

Real estate agent.
