He’s not afraid to take control and direct the team; he’s also the first to heap praise on his teammates for their hard, selfless work.

Fränk Schleck is as motivated as ever. At 36, he’s endured a lion’s share of up and downs in a sport that rarely forgives, but it is not slowing him down. 2015 was not the year he envisioned: A crash at Liège-Bastogne-Liège in April caused him to miss the Tour de France due to inflammation in his knee ligament. A massive blow.

Fränk rebounded as champions do: he won the mountain top finish of stage 16 at the Vuelta a España. With all the setbacks he’s suffered in the past few years, It was the win he desperately needed. It showed we have not seen the last of Fränk Schleck.

Amongst his impressive palmarès standouts are winning Amstel Gold Race and the coveted Alpe d’ Huez stage at the Tour de France in 2006. His stage race victories include the Tour of Luxembourg (2009) and the Tour de Suisse (2010). Fränk is also five-time National Champion and has countless podiums in other major races, the biggest a third overall in the 2011 Tour de France.

Fränk welcomes the pressure that comes with being one of the veteran leaders and is not afraid to take control and direct the team; but he is also the first to heap praise on his teammates for their hard, selfless work. He knows his best years may be behind him, that his role in the team at times will be as support, but underneath it all he holds a confident belief in himself. 2016 will not be his last.
