TEAMVISION represents Max Walscheid, who signed a professional two-year contract with Team Sunweb, former Team Giant-Alpecin.
Previously to that, he already raced as a stagiaire for the WorldTeam. Max is a sprint specialist and an outstanding time trial racer. In the beginning of 2015, he raced for the german continental Team Kuota-Lotto. Prior to that, he raced two years at Team Stölting. 2014 he became German U23 Champion.
Despite strokes of bad luck and a severe injury, Max concluded his first professional season with five victories, rendering him the most successful athlete on the team.
Max’s entry into the world of cycling was unusual: he raced on the road for the first time in the U17 age category. Beforehand, he excelled at track and field meets and discovered cycling by entering mountain bike races.
After two successful years as a U19 rider, Max switched to the Team Raiko-Stölting in 2012; he remained at the team – then Team Stölting – until the end of 2014.
The almost gigantic man – 198 cm and 89 kg – is not only convincing due to his athletic attributes: before and after the races, Max Walscheid’s strong personality makes him very likeable.
The image of an upcoming and promising road racer is augmented by traits such as humility, determination, the constant ability to analyze and a desire to perform for his teammates.
Since 2016 Max races as a pro for the UCI WorldTour-Team Team Sunweb, former Team Giant-Alpecin.
