Alexander Konychev completes 15-man squad!

Team Vorarlberg has strengthened its squad once again. The 25-year-old Italian Alexander Konychev has now joined the squad of 15 riders. Konychev, son of the well-known and equally successful Dimitri Konychev, will join the team next week in Rhodes.

From 2019 to 2022, he was under contract with the World Tour teams of Dimension-Data, Mitchelton-Scott and Team BikeExchange-Jayco. Last year, the likeable Italian, who is at home near Lake Garda, was part of the Corratec-Selle Italia UCI Pro Team.

Classics specialist with some qualities

He finished eighth in the GP Vorarlberg UCI 1.2 before starting in the Giro d Italia. He has already achieved numerous podium finishes in UCI races, as well as fifth place in the 2021 Italian Pro Championships. Konychev clocked up a total of 13,383 kilometers of racing last year. He is also a strong time trialist.

Alexander Konychev (25) ITA: “It’s great for me to be part of Team Vorarlberg from now on. These were very tough times for me. Now I have found a team that still believes in me and also offers me the opportunity to show my best performance. The structure, all the material and the whole organization of the team is very professional. Now I am looking forward to achieving big goals with the team. I thank them for their trust and hope I can repay this trust with my performances.”
