Hello everyone!

Let me welcome you to this blog of mine, where I will provide you with lots of information on myself, my professional career and progress and that of my team, Bora - Hansgrohe. But first things first - let me introduce myself:


My name is Emanuel Buchmann - that much I assume you knew already. I'm 24 years old, and one of the few dedicated climbers that German cycling currently has to offer.

Testing the waters as a professional cyclist in the continental teams of Specialized and Rad-Net Rose, I made the first big step in my career when I signed for then pro-continental team Bora - Argon 18 for the 2015 season.


In my debut year with the team, I achieved my first, and to this day only, win at the German National Championships! And with the champion's jersey on my shoulders, I tackled my first grand tour, the Tour de France 2015, which had another highlight in store for me: A third place on the tough mountain stage up to Cauterets!

I came back to the Tour a year later, a stronger and more experienced rider. And it showed. With a 21st place overall and 3rd in the young riders classification, I proved to be somewhat close to the best. Now, in both my and the team's first year in World Tour, I want to take it to the next level.


Before I wrap up this first post, let me quickly tell you what you can expect on this blog: The main focus will of course be my own development, so you'll get reports from every race I participate in, the occasional training impression, medical news and all that good stuff.

In addition, I will give you some insights into our team, let you know the main results in monthly updates, and maybe show you a special highlight every now and then. Lastly, should there be any other major news in the world of cycling that I feel are important, I will give you my thoughts on them as well!

So, this is it for now. I hope you'll enjoy this blog and stay tuned as you get to see my career progress further and further.

See you around,

That sounds like a nice idea. Maybe also try to "transform" him to a more open person. He's so damn shy.
Oooeh, looking forward to this story! Tracking this thread that's for sure! Smile
@Paul: Haha, he's shy indeed, but I'll see what I can do Wink
@Masterblaster: Thank you, I appreciate it! I hope you'll continue to enjoy it!

Hello everyone!

The new pro cycling season is officially underway with the Autralian National Championships starting tomorrow, so I feel like this is a good time to give you guys an understanding of what my season is going to look like. It's going to be roughly divided into three parts:

Part One

14.-19.2. Tour of Oman2.HC
23.-26.2. Abu Dhabi Tour2.WT
8.-14.3. Tirreno - Adriatico2.WT
20.-26.3. Volta Ciclista a Catalunya2.WT
3.-8.4. Vuelta Ciclista al Pais Vasco2.WT
11.4. Paris - Camembert1.1
16.4. Amstel Gold Race1.WT
19.4. La Flèche Wallonne1.WT
23.4. Liège - Bastogne - Liège1.WT

I will start racing in February already, which is great! The warm climate in on the Arabian peninsula will be nice as well. As you can see, I'm doing almost exclusivley World Tour races, and Abu Dhabi will be the first.

Both there and in Italy, I'll be assisting Rafal Majka and Leopold König, but afterwards, I am supposed to get more of a leading role. In both Spanish races, I will be the team's main GC contender, which is awesome!

Finally, I will be racing in the Ardennes classics. I was a little surprised at first, since I tend to see myself more as a climber and stage racer. But the team management told me they see great promise in one-day-races for me as well, and it's true that I have been somewhat successful in this department last year, especially in the Olympic Games.

In total, these are 33 race days, so quite a lot from the get-go.

Part Two

27.5. Grand Prix de Plumelec1.1
28.5. Boucles de l'Aulne1.1
4.-11.6. Critérium du Dauphiné2.WT
16.-20.6. Route du Sud2.1
1.-23.7. Tour de France2.GT

After some five weeks of rest, I'll be starting again in preparation for my main personal goal of the year - my third Tour de France. With Rafal Majka doing the Giro and the Vuelta, Leopold König is currently the dedicated leader for the Tour. But if I'm developing well, I think I may be able to challenge him for it. Since he's riding the Tour de Suisse, the Dauphiné will be the Chance to prove myself!

Another 35 days of racing will leave me at 68 after the Tour.

Part Three

The last part of the season is still very much in the air. Originally, I was hoping to be able to do both the Tour and the Vuelta, but with the first part of my season being as long as it is, I don't think that's a possibility anymore.

Since the team seems to see me potentially as a classics contender as well, maybe I'll take a longer break and then ride some autumn classics, go to Canada and Il Lombardia, something like that. We will just have to see how I feel in late July, and go from there.

In general, I'm very happy with this schedule. I'm doing some very challenging races - most importantly of course Le Tour -, and I will even get to lead the team in some of them. Also, I am going to be able develop a lot by riding on a great variety of terrains.

That's a lot of information to take in, so I'll leave it at that. Let me know what you think about the season planning, and what you think I'll be able to achieve!

See you around,

I will definitely follow this one Smile
It's Dominik Nerz all over again!
@Masterblaster: Yes, German races are a little difficult. Frankfurt-Eschborn and Hamburg are neither on Emu's terrain, nor do they fit his schedule. Rund um K√∂ln would have been an option, as he did very well there last year, but it clashes with both the Dauphin√© and the Tour de Suisse, which is problematic. Maybe in the future though Wink And the M√ľnsterland Giro could be added to the late season schedule.

@everyone: Thanks again for the support! Next update is coming a bit later in the afternoon.
