Career SummaryAustrian road champion Bernhard Kohl is still developing as an overall cyclist but is considered a climbing specialist. In 2006, he finished 3rd in the prestigious Dauphine Libere, won the Austrian national road championships, and finished 2nd overall in the mountains classification of the Amgen Tour of California.
Team Gerolsteiner manager Hans-Michael Holczer expressed confidence in his new sign-up: “There are not many riders of his age and with his mountain skills in the peloton. And his potential has not even been tapped yet. Bernhard will be an immense boost to Gerolsteiner, especially in the alpine terrain.” Kohl is a certified chimney sweep.
