Trek-Segafredo continues to rely on gebioMized
The WorldTour cycling team Trek-Segafredo around pros like John Degenkolb, Richie Porte and Bauke Mollema trust in the bike fitting experts from Muenster/Germany also in the new season.
„gebioMized convinces us again and again with their technical lead and high expertise. It is only logical that we will continue to work side by side in the future“

A successful cooperation is on its way to the next stage: the WorldTour-Team Trek-Segafredo will continue to rely on the bike fitting experts of gebioMized. “We are now entering our fifth season together”, says bike fitter Michael Killermann and recollects exciting jobs and great successes, e.g. the cobblestone project. With that project the German John Degenkolb laid an important foundation for his long-awaited victory on the Tour de France stage over the Pavés near Roubaix as early as autumn 2017. “We were already chasing over the cobblestones sectors again and again with gebioMized in October. A great feeling when this long-term, meticulously prepared plan comes to fruition months later”, says John Degenkolb.
Team Trek-Segafredo is aiming for similar triumphs in the coming season. The Australian Richie Porte and Jasper Stuyven from Belgium want to attack in the Grand Tours, while John Degenkolb focuses on the spring classics again, but also on the World Championship in Great Britain. A piece of the puzzle on the path to success: the well-founded analyses and a gradual further development of the riding positions by gebioMized. Michael Killermann and his colleagues rely on in-house developed technology like the dynamic measurement of the saddle pressure. “We pay great attention to the three contact points between man and machine,” explains the bike fitter referring to saddle, handlebars and pedals. “We want to further optimize the interaction between road bike and cyclist so that the boys and girls sit better on the saddle and carve even higher speeds into the tarmac. Especially the tailor-made bike shoe inlays manufactured in Muenster provide for good pressure on the pedal.
