Welcome to the Pushbikers

My team, my crew, my family – welcome to the Pushbikers, Roy! Following the World Championships in Paris in October, where Roy won the bronze medal in scratch, and before the UCI Track Champions League starts on 12 November, we would like to finally introduce you to the Dutchman. We talk to him about track riding, team spirit, good coffee and show you some highlights of his career in pictures.

Partner in crime

“You meet each other twice in life” . And even then, you can share the same values. Welcoming Roy Eefting as a new rider for 2023 reunites us with Nick Stöpler, ex-track pro, Pushbiker and recently Dutch national coach. A conversation about well-being, positive influence on others and why track cycling is like a game of chess.

I see the world in colours

There is hardly anything more beautiful than finding companions who share the enthusiasm for a cause. Cycling is our passion, our attitude to life and also a form of perception. We were also able to inspire Anne-Sophie Kramer, designer at Maloja, for cycling. And she inspires us with her drawings and her ability to capture everything around her in colours and shapes.

The first Gravel World Championships

He has only been riding gravel for a short time - and already the UCI Gravel World Championships became his second gravel race. Wearing the national jersey of New Zealand, pushbiker Felix Meo finished in 25th place. You can read a short summary of the Gravel World Championships in Veneto here.

– It comes as it comes –

The legendary Ötztal Cycling Marathon. It is a cycling monument with its four Alpine passes, 227 kilometres and 5,500 metres of altitude. Also for our friend Helmut Trettwer. A race that accompanies him: in 2020 as a tribute to suffering on open roads and in 2022 as he rides solo from the front for over three hours.

Light & Shadow

The Tour de France is the most famous cycling race in the world. "Le Tour" puts everything in the shade - even other races like the Sibiu Cycling Tour. How does a multi-day race feel in the shadow of the Tour? A photo feature by the Maloja Pushbikers.

Let`s gooooooo

Maloja Pushbikers Future Stars - that's our junior team. Girls and boys from four years old to U19, on the road bike, on the track or the trails - here it's all about diversity and lots of fun on the bike. Our young riders are also very successful in 2022. Medals at the German Track Championships, participation in the European Championships and cackling in training - read more about the Future Stars here.

Riding together

Cycling together, socialising, having fun. This is the basis of our philosophy and so we have developed great formats in the past weeks and experienced what this can look like. Find out more about the Pushbikers Social Rides and events with partners here.

Gold for Bertazzo and the Italian quartet in Cali

Countdown: European Championships in Munich

In August, our Pushbiker Liam Bertazzo will be at the European Track Cycling Championships in Munich. Save the date, because we want to be there in the exhibition hall when it's: Avanti, gli Azzurri!

Pushbikers Stories: Bike Workshop

Keeping calm is part of Waldemar Wilhelm's job. Fiddling around, taking a close look, even getting inventive sometimes. As workshop manager, Waldemar is responsible for all the bikes we sell in the Pushbikers Shop. And he shares our passion for bikes, technology and individual bike wishes. You can get an insight into the workshop world here.

Racing in May

Three second places, two Bundesliga races, the cycling classic Rund um Köln and the Fleche du Sud Tour in Luxembourg. There is a lot to tell about the "wild May". The summary and some insights from our riders can be found here.

Pushbikers and Friends Ride

This summer we will have our weekly rides again! We cordially invite you to join us on our weekly road bike rides on Thursdays. You can find all the information here.

New in

We continue to develop. Sportingly, humanly, as a team. And we welcome a new mountain rider and two new employees to our Pushbikers family. Find out more here.

Sommer Season Shop Opening

Bye bye winter! We want to enjoy the sun, a creative interlude, and go cycling together with you. In summary: finally welcome the summer! We start on Friday and Saturday, 13 and 14 May. What's on offer? Read more here.

Winning Bike

Our first stage win in 2022. The winning bike: Wiawis WAWS Disc. But what exactly makes this bike a winning bike? We take a closer look and present Filippo's bike to you.

On track: Nations Cup Glasgow

Liam Bertazzo is the track specialist in our team. Participating in the European and World Championships with the Italian national team is at the top of his list.

Seeing yellow. Belgrad Banjaluka

The first stage win of the season: Filippo Fortin wins the first stage of the Tour of Belgrade Belgrade Banjaluka. Read about wearing the yellow jersey, crosswinds, ice cream in the hotel room and new friendships during the journey through Serbia here.

Welcome to our new space!

Sometimes you need very special places where you feel at home. We are expanding our cycling shop in Holzkirchen - and from now on we also have more space for our professional team. Shop, workshop, café, meeting place, office - everything runs together. Find out more about the new premises and the two Pushbikers locations here.

How to get there

To be successful as a professional cyclist - that's a long, hard road. Our young team riders are also concerned about this. There is no "general recipe", and yet young talents have many questions. We listened to youngster Corbinian talking to our two Italian full pros Pippo and Liam.

When enthusiasm is infectious

When training feels like a bike race and enthusiasm is contagious - then it's the Pushbikers training camp on Lake Garda! For the 2022 season, the final course was set here - on the bike, in conversation, with a lion in training and Mario Cipollini on a short visit.

Like a “University of Cycling”

My team, my crew, my family - welcome to the Pushbikers, Liam! We accompanied him during training in the Montichiari velodrome with the national team, and we also took the opportunity to philosophise a bit about track cycling, our own history and old times. The conversation between Liam Bertazzo, Christian Grasmann and national coach Marco Villa here.

Benvenuto: Liam Bertazzo

"For me, track cycling is a unique and special world." Liam Bertazzo loves excitement, adrenaline and thrills on the track. In road cycling you learn your limits, but sometimes it also helps you to overcome them, he revealed to us. Welcome to the Pushbikers, Liam!

Maloja Pushbikers. 2022 season

"Willkommen 2022" sagt das UCI Continental Team Maloja Pushbikers. Mit vielen neuen Gesichtern, definierten Zielen, erweiterter Infrastruktur und ganz viel Liebe für den Radsport.

Pushbikers Winter Camp

How do we start the new year 2022? Together at the Winter Camp. A cycling team without bikes, but with lots of fellowship, talks, snowshoes, cross-country skiing - and touring skis. And a little silver bullet that almost made some of the pushbikers despair. Here you can find the feature on the January Winter Camp.

Pushbikers 2022 – Benvenuto Mauro Finetto

"The feeling of passing on emotions to the family and fans is beautiful," says Mauro Finetto. He loves the showdown, as does his compatriot and also pushbiker from 2022, Filippo Fortin. He rode for Team Delko for several years and brings a lot of cycling experience, also from the big cycling classics, to the Pushbikers. Welcome to the Pushbikers, Mauro!

Pushbikers 2022: Part III

Pushbikers 2022. Welcome again!

It is always exciting to get in touch with new riders, to explore common ground, to build new opportunities. But it's just as important to be able to keep riders with you and continue to grow with them. We are looking forward to welcoming four of our Pushbikers back to the team next year - find out who will be joining us from 2021 here. Welcome back!

Pushbikers 2022- Benvenuto Filippo Fortin

"It is the feeling of success that motivates me," says Filippo Fortin. He loves the competition and the test of strength. That's how he caught our eye a few years ago at the Red Hook Criteriums. In the meantime he also raced in the World Tour and we are happy to introduce him as our first new rider for 2022. Welcome to the Pushbikers, Filippo!

Passion connects

Sometimes you need very special places where you feel at home. This is also true for the Pushbikers. We have created such a place in Holzkirchen: Shop, workshop, café, meeting place, office - all in one. Where you can work, craft, talk. Find out more here.

Pushbikers Grand Tour: Part III and summary

Our Pushbikers Grand Tour: Three tours in three weeks. At the end, the Slovakia Tour in the shadow of the superhero Peter Sagen. What did we experience, learn and win? Here you can find a summary of the exertion, great emotion and TV time on Eurosport.

Challenge Ciclista Mallorca: Of goals, setbacks and experiences

We are proud of our Pushbikers! The Challenge Ciclista Mallorca demanded a lot from our road riders in terms of sport, but also offered a lot. The four days of racing brought forth many things: anticipation and excitement, tension and exhaustion. Snapshots that accompany us as a team and always bring us back down to earth. The here and now, what is the team already capable of, and what is still ahead of us? One thing is certain: steep paths motivate!

Maloja Pushbikers x Challenge Ciclista Mallorca

A highlight in our road racing calendar: the Challenge Ciclista Mallorca. A great opportunity and a huge challenge for the Maloja Pushbikers. Sporting at the highest level, with teams from the World Tour and Pro Tour, with demanding routes on the island, with extremely strong international competition.

Tour of Rhodos 2021

Already at the one-day race GP Rhodes ( UCI 1.2) Mikà Heming could record a remarkable fifth place. This was followed by a top 20 position in the prologue and 3rd place at the end of the first stage for Heming. At the end of the Rhodes Tour, the Maloja Pushbikers finished 7th in the team classification and 17th for Corey Davis. Sporting Director Rupert Hödlmoser sees this as the Road team's first major success.

Together for a good cause

Sharing values and standing up for them together - that's what matters. On the last weekend in March, we launched an action where great athletes, types and characters came together to show attitude. The idea: We support the Traunstein café Wiggerl17 by delivering snacks and orders by bike on two days, generating donations for the social support programmes of the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation.

Our partnership with the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation

As a partner of the non-profit Laureus Sport for Good Foundation, we want to inspire children and young people for cycling and collect donations for the foundation's social support programmes.

Season opener 2021

Top 10 finishes, first UCI points and valuable points for the Olympic qualification: the Maloja Pushbikers Road and MTB have contested the first races of the 2021 season. The start of the season was overshadowed by a serious crash at the Istrian Spring Trophy.

Fem – The Story

The FEMs love cycling and the adventures that come out of it. When Lena and Sofie sent their first text message to Christian Grasmann in June 2016, probably no one believed that something like the FEM Team would come out of it. But there was a vision - and it's still alive today.
