After the initial introduction last week, we are now revealing the next five Hammer Captains of this year’s Hammer Series.
The Hammer Captains will drum up support among fans by providing exclusive content on social media and will lead their team’s cheering even if they’re not participating in a Hammer race.
These riders will take on the role of leader while battling it out during the Hammer Climbs, Sprints and Chases and as team ambassador when not in the saddle.
After announcing Alexander Kristoff (UAE Team Emirates), Brenton Jones (Delko Marseille Provence), Cameron Meyer (Mitchelton-SCOTT), Tim Wellens (Lotto Soudal) and Tom Dumoulin (Team Sunweb) last week, we’re now ready to reveal the next five Hammer Captains:
Sam Bennett | BORA - hansgrohe
Greg van Avermaet | CCC Team
Timo Roosen | Team Jumbo-Visma
Owain Doull | Team Sky
Krister Hagen | Riwal Readynez
The final captains will be revealed next week. See our Hammer Captains page for those already announced.
